3-Understanding Pregnancy Reassurance Scans

While being pregnant can be exciting, it can also be a period of uncertainty and fear. Reassurance scans, also called “peace of mind” scans, can help allay these worries and offer important details concerning your unborn child.

An ultrasound test known as a “reassurance scan” is carried out during pregnancy to verify the health of the foetus and look for any potential problems. Depending on the mother’s individual concerns and the discretion of her obstetrician, these scans are frequently conducted between 14-40 weeks of gestation.

The first reassurance scan is used to establish if you are actually pregnant and to gauge your stage of development. If you have experienced any bleeding or cramps, which can be signs of an early pregnancy, this is very crucial.

 The baby’s heartbeat can be seen during a reassurance scan, which can give comfort that the pregnancy is developing normally.

Finding potential problems The results of reassurance scans can be used to spot potential problems of pregnancy. Our experts will work with you to create a plan of care if any problems are found.
