Fetal Medicine / Pregnancy Sonography

Fetal Medicine / Pregnancy Sonography

Ultrasound is ideal to look at the foetus (unborn baby) as it grows throughout the stages of pregnancy. In the first part of pregnancy, it can be used for confirming the age of the foetus and the most likely date of birth, and for screening significant genetic syndromes (eg. Down syndrome). Later in pregnancy, it is used to carefully examine how the foetus is developing, and to ensure the foetus is growing in a healthy manner. An ultrasound obstetric scan is a wonderful opportunity to meet your developing baby.

We use the latest ultrasound equipment and 4D technology available and our ultrasound scans are conducted to the highest international standards.
