Pregnancy Scan (14-18 weeks)

Description
This scan is a routine evaluation of the foetus focusing mainly on growth, gender confirmation, foetal anatomy, amniotic fluid and placenta.

Timeline
This scan is performed between 14-18 weeks.

Expectations
The baby measures approximately 10-20cm and resembles a human being. The head is still large in proportion to the body and there is some evidence of fat and muscle. The foetus will exhibit bony formation rather than soft tissue. The limb movements are frequent and coordinated and mum begins to feel ‘butterflies’. Gender is more easily visible. Results are immediate and a report will be given to you for your doctor, midwife or clinic.

See ”TERMS & CONDITIONS” & “QUESTIONS & ANSWERS” for more information.
