Is the big day just around the corner? If it is, our Presentation Scan will help get you and the baby prepared. Presentation scans are available from 34 weeks onward and are particularly useful if there’s any concern that the baby may be breech.

Your placental position will also be identified during the scan, so you’ll know what your body is getting up to in anticipation of the big day. During your scan, images will also be taken and you will have the option to take these home with you. On some occasions, however, due to the baby’s size at this gestation age, the 2D images that you receive with this package may not always be as clear.

All of our scans are performed by qualified sonographers who have extensive experience with pregnancy scanning. They will know what to look for and will provide you with the reassurance you need during your scan.

Presentation Scan FAQs

How long does a presentation scan take?

You can expect your presentation scan to last around 15 minutes.

Should I drink water before my presentation scan?

If possible, please drink approximately 1 litre of water, at least 20 minutes prior to the scan. However, if you can drink more, this is advisable as it will make it easier to see the baby.

Who will perform my presentation scan?

Your presentation scan will be performed by one of our experienced sonographers who are accredited by either the Health Professional Council, The General Medical Council, or the Society of Radiographers. They also work in the NHS alongside their role within Ultrasound Plus.

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

If you have any doctors/hospital notes from your pregnancy, please bring these along to your presentation scan as this will assist the sonographer if a referral is needed.

Will you advise me if my scan shows anything wrong?

Yes, if your scan indicates anything wrong we will discuss this with you fully and will provide a report you can forward to your GP/health practitioner.

Do I still need to visit the NHS if I had a scan with you?

Yes, our services are a complementary service which works alongside the NHS.

What happens in terms of referrals?

We advise all patients to let their GP/midwife know of their intention to have a scan with us. When you arrive at the Ultrasound plus clinic, we will ask you to complete a registration form which will request your GP/midwife details. If your presentation scan shows a need to contact or share any information regarding you or your baby, you are responsible for providing the report to your GP/midwife.

If I have medical insurance, can I claim for my scans?

You will need to pay for your Ultrasound Plus scan directly and we will provide you with an invoice. We would advise you to check this with your insurance company first, as any claims made are between the patient and the insurance company.

How many people can accompany to my appointment?

You are welcome to bring up to five family and friends along to your appointment.
