At Jordemoderhuset we offer cervical scans. This is a vaginal scan which is done gently and pain free in order to examine the length and position of the cervix and to check how deeply the baby’s head is engaged in the pelvis.
It is an offer to those women who, for an example, have given birth prematurely in the past or who have had many Braxton Hick’s contractions in this pregnancy and would like to know if it has affected the length of the cervix.
The scan is of course carried out by a sonographer with experience in this type of scan.
Our examination couch does not have the regular stirrups used for most gynecological examinations but rather the more comfortable foot rests.
Under each scan type, you can see which weeks are ideal for carrying out various scans. You are always welcome to call us to learn more about the ideal time for a given scan.
We have a beautiful, large scanning room that accommodates up to 6 relatives. Children are, of course, more than welcome. However, very young children (under five years old) often cannot maintain concentration for very long.
Scanning is done using ultrasound waves. The signal is not always as sharp when it has to go through “padding.” We are, of course, interested in ALL the pregnant women who come to us to get the best photos at home. All the clinic’s scanning midwives are experienced, and we do what we can to ensure the best image quality.
It makes no difference to us whether the bladder is full or not.
All our sonographers speak fluent English and are used to explaining the scan images in English.
It is not always that the little one helps to lie in a way so that we can see the gender. If this happens, we will book a new appointment – free of charge.
Our sonographers are all experienced in distinguishing between healthy pregnancies and those with abnormalities. We must refer to further investigations at a hospital if we find something that needs further investigation.
