What are early pregnancy scans?

An early pregnancy scan is a type of ultrasound scan performed recently after finding out that you’re pregnant – it uses sound waves to determine your due date and the viability of the pregnancy.

At Hello Baby, we can perform an early pregnancy scan in St Helens six weeks from your LMP (last menstrual period). Don’t worry if you’re not sure when your last period was – we’ll book you in two weeks after your positive pregnancy test was taken instead to ensure you’re at least 6-weeks gone.

This is important as we can’t guarantee accurate results before this time frame. 

Once you get to six weeks or more from your LMP, our machine will be able to produce an ultrasound image and measure your baby, enabling us to provide you with an approximate gestation and delivery date.

What can you expect to see at your early stages scan

As this scan is performed during the early weeks of pregnancy, you won’t be able to see any of the baby’s features as they haven’t developed enough yet – instead, this type of scan shows a small bean shape, the gestational sac, and the yolk sac within.

Depending on your little one’s positioning, you may be able to hear the baby’s heartbeat from 13 weeks – a memorable moment that you’ll cherish for life.

Down the line, you could also opt to book a gender scan to detect whether you’ll be having a beautiful baby girl or a bouncing baby boy!

4D Baby Scans at Hello Baby

Preparing for your early pregnancy scan

To ensure the best and most accurate due date estimate, we recommend preparing for your six-week scan by ensuring you have a full bladder before your appointment with us.

A full bladder allows for much better echos during the scan, which produces much clearer images for your ultrasound scanner to evaluate.

Please note:

It’s still very important that you attend all NHS appointments, as the exact delivery date will be given at your first hospital scan, which typically occurs after around 12 weeks. During your NHS scan, a health professional will perform all the relevant diagnostic checks to ensure your little one is happy and healthy.

Discount for key workers

We offer an incredible 10% discount on our early pregnancy scans for any employees of key and public services, such as the NHS, armed forces, police and fire service.

If you think you could be entitled to our key worker discount on your early pregnancy scan, please get in touch with our friendly reception for more information.

Early Dating Scan - Frequently Asked Questions

Can early scans at Hello Baby screen for health conditions?

Our ultrasound scanner can’t diagnose potential health conditions during an early scan, as only a healthcare professional can do so.

However, should we notice something unusual or anything that concerns us during your early stages scan at six weeks, we’ll refer you to your midwife, doctor, or local hospital for further medical investigation as a precaution.

This is why it’s still crucial that you attend your NHS scans, where a dedicated healthcare professional can check your baby’s health and growth, and reassure you!

For further guidance on our range of scans, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our helpful reception on 01744 810 999.

What type of scanning equipment will we use?

When we perform our private early pregnancy scans in St Helens, our experienced ultrasound scanner or sonographer will typically use a top-of-the-range transabdominal ultrasound scanner – like the typical scanners you can expect at your NHS scan. Don’t worry, there are no known risks of ultrasound scans during any stage of pregnancy!

After a gel substance is applied to your abdomen, the device is pressed and moved along your skin to produce an image on a monitor, which we’ll use to determine the approximate date your baby will be born!

Sometimes, if you undergo a scan very early in the pregnancy, you may not be able to see as clearly with our normal equipment.

    We came to the clinic on NYE and the process was so smooth. Quick questionnaire then on time for the appointment.
    We didn’t want to know the gender and the girls were amazing with it!
    The scan was so clear and it was such a lovely experience
    … More being in the room and seeing our baby.
    We took our own gender reveal idea with us that the girls very kindly filled for us and popped in a black bag so we couldn’t see until we did the gender reveal.
    Amazing prices. Amazing staff. Amazing clinic and the most special end to our 2023.
    We're having a wonderful baby boy! Thank you so much 🩵💙🤍

  • Amy Cookson ★★★★★
    What a lovely service. The 2 ladies couldn't have been more helpful. I have been here for scans with my twins, my little boy and then returned to have a scan to confirm my miscarriage. We didn't get much support from the hospital … More and hello baby rang me a week after to ask if I needed any advice, support and were just overall lovely. I'm returning Saturday for a gender scan for our rainbow baby.
    Such a lovely welcoming service with staff that really do care and treat you like friends x
  • Rebecca TOPPING ★★★★★
    I've been to Hello Baby a number of times throughout two pregnancies. Every time we have visited we've had a lovely experience. The first we visited was over 3 years ago when I was pregnant with my son. Ive been again more recently … More to see my second baby.
    The girls in there are lovely and super helpful! Will definitely be back again for future scans x
  • Kieran Thomas ★★★★★
    We met the girls at hello baby when we reached just 6 weeks. We’ve had 4 scans with them so far and each one has been the perfect experience.
    The girls are incredibly welcoming, reassuring and make you feel at ease on every visit.
    We can’t
    … More thank them enough for the moments and memories they’ve given us, getting to see our little one grow, to finding out the gender.
    We’ll most definitely be back for a 4D scan later on in our pregnancy. Thank you ! X
  • Kayt Haxby ★★★★★
    Honestly had the BEST experience at Hello Baby.
    We had a rocky start to our pregnancy so we have been to hello baby 3 times now just so we can feel reassured and one of which was for our gender scan. We have been made to feel welcome and
    … More comfortable every single time, but today has outdone the previous experiences by far. And they were already hard to beat.
    The lady who scanned my wife spent extra time with us, no rushing, evening helped get our baby moving around so we could see him better. She gave us a plenty time, and then even went the extra mile and gave us a tiny glimpse of him in 4D.
    We cannot recommend them enough. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and all round GREAT experience! Deffo worth going! 🥰🥰
  • Harriet Wall ★★★★★
    Had our gender scan today and took the kids so they could be part of it. We travelled quite far for the scan and was well worth it! Really welcoming staff and excellent service at the scan. Scan was really clear and we could clearly see … More he was a boy 💙💙 would definitely recommend.
  • And ★★★★★
    Loved our experience at Hello Baby 😃 been here twice ... once in 2018, and again in February 2021. I wanted the gender of my baby kept a surprise as we wanted a gender reveal cannon, and they did not disappoint or give anything away! Staff … More are very friendly and polite. Thank you so much again! Would recommend 5***
  • Merf.Wendy Price ★★★★★
    I came here for a private scan because I was not sure how far gone I was. I got a shock to realise I was already half way through pregnancy and I was having a boy. Came here again for a bonding scan and got some lovely photos. The staff … More were really friendly and I enjoyed the experience. Would definitely recommend xxx
  • Kayla H ★★★★★
    Lovely experience for our first scan! We went for an early reassurance scan and that’s exactly what we got. We turned up at the wrong time but they still fitted us in there and then no waiting around. Would recommend to others in the future … More
  • Jane Jones ★★★★★
    Amazing Experience
    I came to Hello Baby with my daughter for an Early and Bonding Scan, unfortunately they was closed for the gender due to lockdown.
    We had the best experience on both occasions, the receptionist was lovely and friendly
    … More and Katie was fantastic and very professional with what she does.
    On my daughters 1st scan she was too early to detect a heart beat so Katie very kindly offered us to come back the following week for a re scan. It was emotional to hear Katie offering her congratulations the following week and we got the best pictures you can get at such a early date.
    The bonding scan, Katie tried her best and wasn’t going to give up as the baby was in the wrong position, we was told to go for a walk and for my daughter to drink a lucozade.
    Upon our return, the baby had moved position and Katie again got us some amazing images.
    Everybody we met at Hello Baby was warm, welcoming and friendly, nothing was to much trouble and wasn’t rushed.
    We was asked on each occasion if we was happy with the scan pictures before buying them.
    Would definitely recommend and wouldn’t go any where else.
    Thank you Katie and team 💕

    What can I say! Katie made our day magical from the moment we walked in. Her care and enthusiasm for our gender reveal was amazing.
