Reassurance Scan (from 6 weeks)

Early Reassurance Scan (6-11 weeks)

Welcome to London Private Ultrasound, where our Early Reassurance Scan offers pivotal insights into your pregnancy’s health and progress. This scan provides immediate relief and clarity, confirming normal pregnancy progression, excluding miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, and addressing symptoms like bleeding, nausea or discomfort. Our expert sonographers ensure a comfortable and informative experience, fostering a special connection with your baby from the start.

Reassurance Scan (Dating scan)

Starting from the 11th week of pregnancy, our Reassurance Scan provides a thorough examination and reassurance for expectant parents. Our sonographers assess baby’s anatomy, calculate the expected delivery date, and address any concerns, ensuring parents are well-informed about baby’s health and development. This service offers visual reassurance and peace of mind, especially following early pregnancy concerns or discomfort.


There are various reasons why you would wish to have a reassurance scan performed anytime after 8 weeks in your pregnancy:
  • Visualise or listen to your baby’s heartbeat (depending how far along you are)
  • Wishing to have one extra scan outside of NHS antenatal care provider to have one more bonding experience with your baby before the delivery
  • Have been experiencing leaking of fluid or some vaginal bleeding (in which case we also recommend to check your cervical length)
  • Have been feeling generally unwell and wish to make sure your baby’s unaffected
  • Have been feeling reduced baby movements
  • Wish to confirm baby’s lying head down
  • Wish to confirm there is enough fluid around your baby
  • You will be asked a series of questions related to your estimated date of deliver (EDD) or assisted conception dates and symptoms you are presenting with
  • Perform the Ultrasound scan and take high quality representative images
  • Explain ultrasound findings and answer your questions or concerns within our scope of practice
  • Issue a hard copy of the report at the end of the scan, as well as issue a digital copy of the report within 24 hrs, containing relevant images for you to keep for your records, or take to your GP and / or antenatal care provider
  • Recommend a follow-up ultrasound scan if necessary
  • Offer GP or specialist referral and a Blood Test if deemed necessary
The most common finding at this stage is a normally developing baby with normal appearances for this stage of the pregnancy. On a rare occasion, we may notice some structural abnormalities or other concerns, in which case you will be notified and advised to be referred to a tertiary centre for further evaluation.
In most cases a blood test will not be necessary, however in some situations we may recommend one.
Reassurance Scan is performed transabdominally (on top of your tummy), for which we advise to have a full bladder if you are under 16 weeks and nearly empty bladder if over 16 weeks in your pregnancy.
The Ultrasound Specialist will explain the procedure before your scan. A small amount of water-based gel will be applied to your tummy, so that the specialist will be able to produce high quality diagnostic ultrasound images and assess your baby. You should not feel any discomfort during your ultrasound scan. The Reassurance Ultrasound Scan is regularly completed within 15 minutes, depending on the position of your baby. Our Sonographer will recommend the best course of action depending on the ultrasound scan findings.
You will get the results of the scan after the examination along with a hard copy of the report. We will also email you a digital copy of the report with relevant images within 24 hrs.
Ultrasound scan itself does not harm the pregnancy. Yours and your baby’s safety is one of our top priorities, therefore we strictly adhere to BMUS guidelines for the safe use of Diagnostic Ultrasound Equipment and scanning times, as well as respect ALARA principle (As Low As Reasonably Achievable).

My partner went to the clinic to have three different scans today.The doctor was great. He explained the findings while was doing the scans. He gave a lot of advices about the blood tests to perform in order to explore the findings further. The clinic is clean and the prices are really competitive. I highly recommend the clinic.

I am very satisfied with the service I received. I had two appointments, both scheduled at very short notice due to anxiety over symptoms similar to a previous DVT. Two thorough scans and a full explanation of the results put my mind at ease. The professional yet friendly approach of everyone I met made it a stress-free experience for me. Highly recommended.

I had a good experience with LPU, the premises were simple and there is no fancy waiting room but what you do get is a caring, quality, professional service at a competitive price, which I think really is what most people want. My concerns and questions were answered, my report was clear and the staff were kind and friendly. Would return and would recommend.
