Pregnancy scans

What is a Pregnancy Scan?

There are a number of pregnancy scans available at Circle:

- Viability scans - from six weeks onwards to confirm viable pregnancy and dates
- Anomaly scans - to check for fetal anomaly
- Growth scans - to check that baby is growing well

What does this involve?

Most of these scans are done abdominally, but a transvaginal scan (where a probe is placed inside the vagina) can be necessary in early pregnancy.

Sometimes, a repeat scan can be needed to confirm viability in early stages of pregnancy.
