Private Anomaly Scan
The anomaly scan is a 30 minute appointment in which to complete a diagnostic scan to check for any major physical abnormalities or anomalies in the baby. This scan is best performed around 18-21 weeks of the pregnancy.
The scan looks in detail at the baby’s bones, heart, brain, spinal cord, face, kidneys and abdomen, with a view to investigate the:
- Position of Placenta
- Development of Foetus
- Anatomical Structures
- Measurement at the expected gestational age
- Cardiac Abnormalities
- Presence of cleft lip
- Presence of open spina bifida
In the event of any concerning results found by the sonographer, you will be advised to contact your GP or the midwife immediately.
Please note that the aim of this scan is to ascertain any anomaly in the baby at the time of the scan, and we try our utmost to do that. However, with the best of intentions there is always a chance that certain anomalies are not visible clearly and may not be identified at this stage. This is considered a normal factor in the industry including the NHS. Peek-a-Baby/Ultrasound-Direct does not take any responsibility for any anomalies appearing or becoming evident at a later stage.

It’s an amazing experience and the staff are amazing, I had a 4D scan but unfortunately, my son didn’t want to co-operate so the staff gave me a drink and got me to walk about. I thought after my walk I’d have to wait for ages but they had me back in fairly quickly and this time I actually got to see my son. The images produced were amazing and didn’t take too long to print, I was also able to take all my family and boyfriends family in the room (7 adults and 3 children) which I was grateful for as usually it’s only 5 adults and 1 child allowed. The waiting room is also very lovely and child-friendly as there are more than enough toys for the children to play with.Sadia Hussain

I went to the NHS for an emergency scan and they gave me an appointment for 3 days later. Phoned Peek A Baby and they gave me an appointment the same day. They were brilliant. Had my scan and thank goodness everything was ok. They took their time and answered all my questions. Me and my partner were so happy when we walked out. Can’t thank Peek A Baby enough. I will definitely be going back there for my gender scan!Chloe Colles
