Anomaly Scan

About your Anomaly Scan

An anomaly scan takes place at around 20 weeks and checks to see how your baby is growing and where the placenta is lying in the uterus.

On the scan you’ll be able to see your baby’s face and fingers clearly, and you may be able to find out the sex of your baby too. The team at Baby Scan Clinic will ensure you receive a relaxing and positive experience when you book your 20-week anomaly scan with us.

What to expect on the day

By looking at your baby in greater detail we can check that all’s going according to plan at this particular stage of your pregnancy. One of our friendly and experienced sonographers will use gently warmed ultrasound gel to help you feel comfortable. Then they’ll assess your baby's development by looking at specific anatomical structures including the limbs, spine, heart and tummy.

All assessments and sonographer notes will be recorded on a printed report, which you can take to your GP our consultant for further asessment and information.

If clear and accurate measurements cannot be obtained in the first instance, an internal transvaginal probe may be used. Your sonographer can explain this to you in more detail if necessary.

Preparing for your Anomaly Scan

It’s not necessary to have a full bladder when you have your growth scan. So feel free to eat and drink as normal on the day of your scan and wear loose clothing during your appointment. The scan will last approximately 20-25 minutes.
