Early Reassurance Scan

This private early reassurance scan is available from as early as 6 weeks gestation. We will always start the scan using the abdominal probe, however an internal scan will be offered if we are unable to meet the objective of the scan. You have the right to decline this option, in which case we will invite you back for another abdominal scan at a later date.

Please visit our FAQ’s for more information.

You must still attend your 12 week diagnostic scan with the NHS.

This 15 minute pregnancy scan will be performed by a qualified and experienced obstetric Sonographer.

You can prepare for your early reassurance scan by ensuring that you are properly hydrated; we recommend that you drink plenty of water in the hour before your scan.

Please bring your pregnancy notes with you. We may not need them, but it is helpful if our qualified Sonographers need to refer to them at any stage during your early reassurance scan.

Additional images, digital downloads of your scan images and a variety of products are available at Hey Baby 4D Southampton to purchase on the day.
