The due date scan is usually the first ultrasound scan in pregnancy. Ideally it is made between 9 weeks and 6 days and 10 weeks and 4 days to determine the gestational age of the embryo and set the due date. We will also look for a heartbeat and check if there is one embryo or maybe more. This scan can be made earlier or later but could then be a bit less reliable. Your midwife will send us a referral for this scan so the insurance will cover it. The insurance will only pay for one due date scan.
Our sonographers need to concentrate themselves in order to make a good medical scan. Therefor it’s not allowed to bring children to your medical scan.
