GP Care provides pregnancy reassurance scans to prospective mothers from 7 weeks gestation at a variety of local clinic locations across Bristol. The cost of £70 includes a 20 minute appointment and photo images to keep.
Why would you want a reassurance scan?
If you have had a previous miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy you will naturally be anxious about your pregnancy. Perhaps this is your first experience of pregnancy or you want a scan before one is available through the NHS. You may just want to be assured that your pregnancy is progressing as expected.
Studies have shown that fetal health anxiety is relieved by ultrasound, particularly when women are able to see the image of their baby and receive encouraging verbal feedback from an ultrasonographer.
Please note that this is a pregnancy reassurance service to assess fetal well being. It is not an OSCAR scan for nuchal translucency measurement.
