Nuchal dating scan
At your dating scan, you will also be offered a nuchal translucency (NT) scan which assesses whether your baby is likely to have Down's syndrome.
We recommend that you present your screening results to your usual healthcare professional whose contact details we take at the time of booking.
We may offer further investigations and closer monitoring if abnormalities are present and we will continue to support you throughout.
In addition to the above, you may be offered additional screening tests if your midwife or doctor believes they will help them to monitor the health and wellbeing of your baby.
Please do not go to the toilet for the half hour before your appointment.
For a dating scan or placental check, please drink 2 glasses of non-fizzy water one hour before. I popped in this morning for my 12 week scan and I was blown away by how you are genuinely enthusiastic and passionate about what you do.
