This scan is a wonderful option if you feel you need extra reassurance that baby is doing well – or if you just want to see your beautiful little miracle (again).
We sometimes refer to this scan as our ‘hospital scan’, as it compares 1-1 to the one offered at all Danish hospitals. Furthermore, all our staff have hospital backgrounds or currently work at one, which means we can offer the same level of professionalism and expertise as you would receive at a hospital.
During the 30-minute scan, we measure baby’s weight, your cervix (if you wish), as well as the flow in the umbilical cord. We recommend this scan from 20 weeks – full term.
The 30-minute reassurance scan
During this scan, we measure baby’s head, abdominal circumference, and thigh bone. We also measure the flow in the umbilical cord to assess whether your little one is getting enough nutrition. Finally, the amount of amniotic fluid is also measured.
If you wish, we offer to measure the cervix during the 30-minute scan (through vaginal ultrasound examination).
As the focus of this scan is to make sure everything is going well, we are less concerned with getting a lot of beautiful images – although, of course, we will do our best. After the scan, you receive 5-6 black and white printouts, which we will also send to your email along with little video clips, if any.
The 15-minute scan: A quick hello
The 15-minute scan is a great option if you just want to say a quick hello to your little one. The 15 minutes include signing in at the clinic and getting ready for the scan.
We recommend this scan from 13 – 20 weeks. If you want more details, feel uneasy, or in need of full reassurance that baby is doing well, the 30-minute scan is a better option. Alternatively, the 3D/4D scan.
As the main focus of this scan is to just have a quick peek, we have little time to capture a lot of beautiful images – although, of course, we will do our best. After the scan, you receive 2-3 black and white printouts, which we will also send to your email along with little video clips, if any.
