Bonding & Wellbeing Scan


16-40 weeks

During the bonding & wellbeing scan, we will check your baby’s measurements, amniotic fluid and position giving you the opportunity to see and bond with your baby during the second or third trimester. Our scans are performed by local, qualified Sonographers.

What is included with your scan:

  • Check your baby’s wellbeing
  • See and hear your baby’s heartbeat
  • Confirm your baby’s presentation (position)
  • Check your placenta location
  • Check the amount of amniotic fluid around baby
  • Provide approximate measurements and an estimated fetal weight (after 24 weeks)
  • Short 4D snapshot (before 32 weeks depending on baby’s position)

Following your ultrasound scan you will be provided with:

  • Two prints
  • Your scan report

Additional extras available:

  • Extra prints (£4)
  • A digital download of all the images and video clips from the scan (£15)
  • Heartbeat teddy bears (£20-25)

Please note:

  • The 4D snapshot is a short preview of 4D mode and is dependent on the position of your baby. Please book our Wellbeing and 4D scan if you would like a full 4D scan.
  • We do not charge extra for twins. Please let us know in advance of the appointment if you have a multiple pregnancy by phone or email as we may wish to extend the appointment time.

How many people can attend with me?

Up to four guests can attend alongside you which can include children.

Depending on the age of the children, we do recommend that children stay outside of the scanning room until the initial wellbeing checks are completed. This, however, is at your discretion.

Will you do a 4D preview?

Most of the bonding & wellbeing scan will be in 2D. We do, however, do a short snapshot in 4D (prior to 32 weeks). This is just a short snapshot of 4D mode, so if your baby is in the wrong position, we may not be able to get any 3D images. If you are looking for a 4D scan, we would recommend booking our wellbeing & 4D scan in which we spend longer in 4D.

Can you tell me the sex of my baby during a bonding & wellbeing scan?

We are more than happy to look to see if we can determine the sex of your baby, yes. If, however, it is not clear then we would not offer a rescan on another date. This is because it is not the primary purpose of this scan. If you are looking to find out the sex of your baby, we would recommend booking our wellbeing & gender scan.

Please see our rescan policy for further information.

Can you keep the sex of my baby a secret?

Yes, absolutely! Many expectant parents prefer to find out the sex of their baby at birth. Our sonographers in these instances will do all they can to keep this a secret for you by asking you to look away from the screens at certain points throughout the scan.

Are your sonographers qualified?

Categorically, yes.

All our sonographers are fully trained and appropriately qualified to perform obstetric ultrasound scans. Most of the team also work for local NHS hospitals.
