Our Simple Tips
Although there are always factors that affect whether we’re able to successfully carry out the scan, if you follow these simple tips, then it will greatly improve the results:
- Relax! Your baby can feel your tension, and won’t want to move about.
- Drink ‘enough’ water. If your scan is before 20 weeks then the fuller your bladder the better. Scans over 20 weeks do not require a full bladder.
- Keep active. If you’re driving for a while, make sure you walk around a little before your scan to help get baby moving a little.
- Try having a fizzy drink and/or a bar of chocolate 20 minutes prior to visit to try and get baby moving.
