Presentation Scan

Fetal presentation Ultrasound scans

When you are looking for a presentation scan, why not come and see one of our qualified sonographer team members? They will be more than happy to offer you a presentation scan; this will determine the baby’s position and if they are in the correct position for birth. During the third trimester, it is essential to check the baby’s position as if they are breached; it can make labour incredibly difficult and mean you need a C-section. Sometimes you can see this during a growth scan or a 4D scan. Ideally, we are looking for your baby to be in the cephalic position, ready for birth.

Our professional sonographers will use an ultrasound probe to check on the baby’s position; the ultrasound scan will determine the placental site, confirm and visualise your baby’s heart, and provide evidence of the presentation. From this presentation scan, we will provide you with a well being assessment report, which can be given to your midwife or doctor at your local hospital.

What does a presentation scan include?

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 37 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 you receive with this package may not always be as clear. Depending on where your baby is lying depends on whether you will receive scan photos at all.

All of our scans are performed by qualified sonographers who have extensive experience with pregnancy scanning. They will know what to look for and provide you with the reassurance you need during your scan. Please remember to come with a full bladder to your presentation scan; that is the best way you can get a clear ultrasound.

What is the purpose of a presentation scan?​

The purpose of a presentation scan from 37 weeks is to confirm your baby’s position and assess whether they are head down or breech. Your placental position will also be identified, and your and your baby’s wellbeing will be assessed.

Any problems identified with either your baby or your pregnancy will be brought to your attention; we are simply looking to check your placenta is ready for birth and your baby is in the correct position for birth.

Our team are skilled sonographers; we can look at your baby, womb and uterus to ensure you are in the correct position to give birth; all of our appointments are carried out by healthcare professionals, if you would like more information, give us a call today.

“We have now had 3 scans at the Brentwood branch, and the staff are lovely! This has been our favourite private clinic.. the sonographer Teresa is lovely, she explains everything in so much detail and doesn’t rush through the scan! No doubt we will be back again before our baby comes.”
