The NHS offers 2 Ultrasound Scans for healthy pregnancies, and that is:
- when you're 10 to 14 weeks pregnant (dating Ultrasound Scan which includes nuchal translucency Ultrasound Scan)
- when you're 18 to 21 weeks pregnant (mid-pregnancy Ultrasound Scan, anomaly or anatomy Ultrasound Scan)
Depending on your health and pregnancy, you can be offered to do more ultrasound scans. You can have regular Ultrasound Scans in private clinics. However, 2-week gaps are advised between the Ultrasound Scans in the early stages and four weeks in the later stages for growth Ultrasound Scans.
