Comfort Scan (incl. 3D) week 15-40+
Shows life with heartbeat
Assesses presence of single or multiple foetuses
Measures amount of amniotic fluid
Measures the size of the foetus
Determines placement of placenta
Estimates the weight after week 20
Measures flow in the umbilical cord after week 25
Here we check if the foetus is growing and developing as expected. We measure the amount of amniotic fluid and determine the placement of the placenta and the gender of the foetus if wanted. After week 20, the weight is estimated and we measure the flow in the umbilical cord after week 25. You receive images in 2D and 3D.
The comfort scan provides an overview of the child's development and well-being
The comfort scan is a good choice if you are worried or if you just need to "take a small peek".
In the comfort scan, we look at how the child's development and well-being is proceeding. We look for foetal movements and we check or confirm the gender if wanted. You also get a weight estimation and determine the placement of the foetus in the uterus and whether there is enough amniotic fluid.
When possible, you'll receive a couple of 3D pictures to bring home. The best 3D pictures are created if there is sufficient amniotic fluid and if the foetus is not "hiding" between legs and arms.
It is no problem to "steer clear" of the gender if you wish to keep it as a surprise. Thus, it is possible to receive a comfort scan without getting to know the gender.
