Pregnancy Scan (14-18 weeks)

This scan is a routine evaluation of the foetus focusing mainly on well-being.

This scan is performed between 14-18 weeks.

The baby measures approximately 10-20cm and the foetus start to resemble a human being. The head is still large in proportion to the body and there is little 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 recognisable but entirely dependent on position. 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.
