Early Pregnancy in London
Are you an expectant mother? Carrying a baby is the joy of motherhood. But pregnant mothers can be anxious with various concerns as to whether the pregnancy is developing normally or that it may result in a miscarriage or even an ectopic pregnancy.
The Gynaecology Clinic provides an early pregnancy scan (sometimes also called a viability scan or dating scan) to reassure you in this very early stage of your pregnancy.
A pregnancy can be seen from as early as 6 weeks from the beginning of your last period (LMP), and not the date of conception. If you’ve got any bleeding or pain or any other symptoms, then this scan will accurately confirm viability.
At the Gynaecology Clinic, we pride on our state-of-the-art medical equipment and facilities including 4D imaging. Our doctors are professionally experienced and caring and will ensure that you receive the best care possible and give advice and support where necessary.
Why you need an Early Pregnancy Scan
- To rule out ectopic pregnancy and confirm the pregnancy sac is located within the uterus
- To confirm pregnancy viability
- To calculate the gestation of pregnancy
- To check for the presence of a heartbeat
- To determine whether it is a singleton or multiple pregnancies
- Identification of bleeding/spotting or any unusual pain
