Wellbeing & Growth Scan: 24-40 Weeks

A Wellbeing & Growth Scan, also known as a growth scan or fetal wellbeing scan, is typically performed in the later stages of pregnancy, usually between 24 and 40 weeks. This type of scan provides important information about the baby’s growth, position, and overall wellbeing. Here are some of the benefits of a Wellbeing & Growth Scan:

    1. Assessment of Fetal Growth: The primary purpose of a growth scan is to assess the baby’s growth rate and size. This helps ensure that the baby is developing as expected and helps identify any potential growth-related concerns.
    2. Monitoring for Complications: A growth scan can help detect conditions such as intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) or macrosomia (excessive fetal growth). Early detection allows for timely interventions to manage these conditions.
    3. Positioning of the Baby: The scan provides information about the baby’s position in the uterus. This is especially important as the due date approaches and can impact decisions regarding delivery options.
    4. Placental Function: The scan can evaluate the function and health of the placenta, which plays a crucial role in providing nutrients and oxygen to the baby.
    5. Amniotic Fluid Levels: The scan assesses the levels of amniotic fluid surrounding the baby. Abnormal levels of amniotic fluid can indicate potential issues.
    6. Fetal Wellbeing: In addition to growth, the scan provides insights into the baby’s overall wellbeing by assessing factors such as fetal movements, heart rate, and breathing movements.
    7. Multiple Gestations: For individuals carrying multiples (twins, triplets, etc.), growth scans help monitor the growth and development of each baby individually.
    8. Reassurance: A Wellbeing & Growth Scan offers expectant parents reassurance about the baby’s health and development, which can reduce anxiety during the final stages of pregnancy.
    9. Planning for Delivery: The scan results help healthcare providers plan for a safe and appropriate delivery, especially if there are concerns about the baby’s growth or position.
    10. Accurate Due Date Confirmation: Late pregnancy scans can provide more accurate confirmation of the due date, which is especially important for those with irregular menstrual cycles or uncertain conception dates.
    11. Documentation and Memories: Many parents appreciate having additional ultrasound images of their baby as keepsakes and memories of the later stages of pregnancy.
    12. Communication with Healthcare Provider: The information from the scan allows healthcare providers to make informed decisions about the timing and type of interventions, if necessary.

It’s important to have Wellbeing & Growth Scans performed by trained medical professionals who can accurately interpret the ultrasound images and provide appropriate guidance based on the findings. These scans play a vital role in ensuring the health and wellbeing of both the expectant parent and the baby as pregnancy progresses towards delivery.
