LADIES BETWEEN 15-25 WEEKS PLEASE ARRIVE WITH A FULL BLADDER, THIS WILL PREVENT A 30-60 MINUTE WAIT TO FILL IT REQUIRED.
A FULL BLADDER IS NOT USUALLY REQUIRED AFTER 25 WEEKS.
IF YOU ARE ON A GENDER REVEAL SCAN PLEASE INFORM OUR STAFF ON RECEPTION.
GENDER REVEAL ITEMS – heart beat bears, Balloons, Confetti Cannons, Frames and Scratch Cards are all available on the day at an extra cost.
What to do before your scan
Please drink 2 extra glasses of water every day, starting the week before you’re scan to make sure you are well hydrated.
On the day of your scan please have a meal around 2 hours before you arrive with us.
Please arrive around 10 -20 minutes before your appointment.
You could have something sweet to eat or drink on the way over to us. This will help to get baby moving. (If you are diabetic this is not necessary).
If you’re traveling for over 45 minutes’ please try to arrive early so you can take a walk, relax and have a long cold drink and snack.
Please bring along your hospital notes. This is extremely important. We may not be able to scan you without them. We use these to confirm your due date and have them on hand for the sonographer if required.
Please ensure you are over 15 weeks for our Gender scans as sexing is not possible or accurate before this time.
You will need to arrive with a full bladder to push baby up and out of your lower pelvis or reliable sexing will much more difficult. A full bladder is VERY IMPORTANT. If your bladder is not full it may take up to an hour to do so. If we are unable to gender baby due to position, BMI or cord on the day, all our scans come with a free rescan guarantee.
Please keep this in mind if you are having a gender reveal party and give your self plenty of time.
Please note gender scans are not 100% accurate, however we do pride ourselves with a 99.9% accuracy rate scanning over 60.000 babies over the last 16 years.
