We offer a specialist ultrasound scan service. A transvaginal probe is used except for the very young patients.
We recommend scans for:
Recent advances in genetics have enabled us to screen your baby at 10 weeks gestation for chromosome abnormalities.
There are a variety of chromosomal disorders of which Trisomy 21 or Downs Syndrome is the most well known.
A sample of your blood at 10 weeks or more gestation can be taken and analysed for cells from your baby which circulate in your blood.
This enables us to make a much earlier diagnosis of a chromosomal disorder and for you to make the appropriate decision about your pregnancy.
A counselling service will support and be available for further discussion if necessary.
Please contact us at 10 weeks for a scan and the blood test.
The charge is £650.
