Early Pregnancy Scans for Reassurance

GP Care provides an early pregnancy scan service for private patients, which aims to give reassurance by assessing fetal wellbeing. Pregnancy scans are available to prospective mothers who are from 7 weeks gestation from a variety of local clinic locations across Bristol at a cost of £75 including photo images.

Why would you want a reassurance scan?
If you have had a previous miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy you will naturally be very anxious about your pregnancy.

You may have a friend or relative who has suffered a miscarriage or problem and you may be worried about your baby.

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 the ultrasonographer.

The ultrasound scan will only take 15 - 20 minutes and the ultrasonographer will be happy to print an image for you, at no extra cost.

Please note that this is an early pregnancy reassurance service to assess fetal well being. It is not an OSCAR scan for nuchal translucency measurement.

Why GP Care?

Our ultrasonographers are highly experienced and fully accredited by the HPC (Health Professions Council). We treat all patients with the utmost dignity and respect and all of our staff are both professional and discreet.
