Book dating scan
Your midwife or GP will only recommend an early scan if there's a concern, for example, if you've had bleeding in this pregnancy.
Your dating scan is offered between about eight weeks and 14 weeks.Your sonographer will gently put a narrow device called a transducer inside your vagina. The transducer will be covered with a plastic or latex sheath and will be well lubricated with gel. If you feel a bit apprehensive about a vaginal scan, you may feel less worried if you: EPAUs will try to find a female sonographer if you request one.Nonetheless, male sonographers will always have a female chaperone working with them.No, a dating scan is measured from the first day of your last menstrual period to the current date. This is more accurate than trying to figure out the exact date you conceived.We have a team of professional sonographers who will perform your scan using our best equipment.All of our sonographers are accredited by either the Health Professional Council, The General Medical Council, Society of Radiographers or the Royal College of Midwives.
We advise our customers to let their GP/midwife know they are planning to have a scan with us at Ultrasound Plus.
All of our scans are performed by qualified sonographers who have plenty experience in pregnancy scanning.
We provide our dating scans from as early as 8 weeks.
Measurements of the CRL (crown rump length) will be taken, alongside a confirmation of a heartbeat.
A dating scan will also confirm whether you are carrying a one or multiple babies.
If your pregnancy is going well, your first ultrasound scan will be your dating scan, between 10 weeks and 14 weeks of pregnancy.
