When can you have an early pregnancy scan?
The early days of pregnancy are both exciting and nerve-wracking as you wait to catch that first glimpse of your baby, but at Hello Baby – we offer baby scans in Manchester from as early as 6 weeks gestation! If you are 6 weeks from your last menstrual period, you can book in with us for an early pregnancy scan where we should be able to determine how far along you are and give you an estimated due date (EDD). It’s important to note that the later you wait to come in for your early pregnancy scan the better chance we will have of seeing baby’s heart beat and the more accurate we can be with giving you an EDD.
What is a HD live scan?
Using state of the art technology, our HD live scans are wonderful ways to capture your baby’s movements as they are growing and developing in your tummy. Available from just 12 weeks, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see your baby in beautiful HD quality moving, playing and showing off their newly developing skills. Although you can opt for a HD live scan from as early as 12 weeks, we advise the optimum time is between 26-32 weeks, or anytime before the baby’s head is engaged in the pelvis area, at which point it can be hard or impossible to see their face. Our non-diagnostic ultrasound boutique is located just a short distance from Manchester and offers long opening hours so that you can come in the evenings after work or find a time that better suits your needs. So, if you’re looking for a HD baby scan in Manchester – get in touch with us today!
What does 4D ultrasound mean?
Whether this is your first pregnancy, or you’ve simply never had an ultrasound scan before, there are a range of scans available as you progress through your pregnancy. You may be wondering what a 4D ultrasound scan is, and how it differs from a 2D or 3D scan, so here is a brief rundown of the three. Basic 2D scans are amongst the most common (and the kind offered under the NHS), and these show a two-dimensional image of your developing baby. 3D scans offer a more detailed, three-dimensional image and 4D ultrasounds are the newest technology used, allowing expectant parents to view their baby in images which are continuously updated, appearing like a moving image. If you’re looking to book in for your 4D baby scan in Manchester, why not get in touch with us here at Hello Baby? We open until late on various days through the week and will always do our best to fit you in at a time that suits you best.
What is a bonding scan?
Here at Hello Baby, we understand how important it is to spend time bonding with your baby, which is why we work hard to give you that experience even before baby is born! Our incredible 3/4D bonding scans are the perfect opportunity for you to see your baby wriggling, playing and maybe even smiling in your belly. The major difference between our bonding scans and regular 2D scans are that you can see moving images of your little one, which lets you take a peed at things that wouldn’t show up on a standard 2D scan. In order to get the most out of your bonding baby scan in Manchester, we recommend mums-to-be wait until at least 26 weeks before booking in as this will render the best images for you. Anytime between 26-31 weeks gestation is perfect for 3/4D bonding scans. So, what can you expect to see? Here are just a few of the things you could see during your bonding scan that makes this experience extra special:
- Baby sucking its thumb
- Baby smiling
- Baby frowning
- Baby blowing raspberries
- Baby playing with the umbilical cord
- Baby opening their eyes
What are the advantages of getting an early gender scan?
If you’re an expectant parent, then the chances are you will have already seen your little miracle during your routine 12-week NHS scan. Maybe you have even grabbed some extra bonding time with additional scans such as those we offer for the early stages of pregnancy here at Hello Baby.
Although you will be given the chance to find out the gender of your baby at around 20 weeks, many parents simply can’t wait to start getting plans in order and instead opt for an early gender scan in Manchester. Here at Hello Baby, we meet so many excited parents who are looking to find out the sex of their baby, whether it’s to help preparations or as a special way to mark the occasion with friends and family. So, what are the advantages of having an early gender scan?
- Peace of mind – not only will you get to find out whether you’re expecting a little girl or boy, but additional scans can give unrivalled peace of mind to parents that their baby is safe and well.
- Ability to plan ahead – if you’re a stickler for planning ahead, finding out the gender of your baby will allow you to purchase gender-specific items and decorate his or her nursery before the big day comes.
- Opportunity to bond – some parents say that knowing what the gender of their baby is before they are born helps them to bond more during pregnancy.
