Routinely in twin pregnancies or at your midwife’s request, you might be asked to come for a growth scan.We do these to check that the baby is growing normally, that there is a normal amount of fluid around the baby, to check on the baby’s position and to check the position of the placenta. Be aware, though, that it’s not always possible for the sonographer to be 100% certain about your baby’s sex.For example, if your baby is lying in an awkward position, or if the image is not clear enough as discussed above.And best of all, you can enjoy this advanced state-of-the-art service without paying a premium!These appointments start at just £59 and include your choice of souvenir DVD or USB movie clip recordings.This is the only time that this scan can be performed.
HD 4D Babybond scans provide a level of clarity that's never before been possible.
We send these measurements to Lab Plus in Auckland where a blood sample from you is also sent.
Lab Plus then calculate the risk or chance that your pregnancy is affected with Down Syndrome.
Please also remember that the health of your baby is our priority and whilst we are happy to tell you the gender if we can see it is not the reason for the scan.
Although in theory it is sometimes possible to tell the sex of the baby at 12 weeks it is not our policy to do so as it is often difficult, time consuming and not as accurate as we would like.
