An ultrasound scan is an imaging technique that uses ultrasound. It is used routinely in medicine and helps to verify that everything is well with your baby and its environment, using a vaginal or abdominal probe. 
This examination is completely painless for you and your baby.

During pregnancy, it is recommended that a total of three ultrasound scans should be performed:

    • One to date the pregnancy at 12 WA
    • One to check that your child is developing normally at 20 weeks
    • One at the end of your pregnancy to make sure your baby can wait for the delivery to begin
