We do many early scans at Jordemoderhusets Ultrasound Clinic, so we have a lot of experience with these types of scans. We offer scans from as early as 5+0 weeks gestation.
This scan will allow us to see whether the pregnancy has been implanted correctly in the uterus and the heart is beating (heartbeat not until week 6+0 onwards).
We will also give a qualified evaluation of how far along in your pregnancy you are if you are unsure.
Our ultrasound midwives are highly educated and very experienced in performing early scans. This assures you that you will get a professional and qualified pregnancy evaluation.
The very early scans (before week 10) are performed vaginally. After ten weeks of gestation, early scans can be offered abdominally. The ultrasound midwife will evaluate this.
Our ultrasound midwives are all experienced in performing vaginal scans, and it will be done pain-free and respectfully, as we know this is not a situation everyone feels comfortable with. We offer a comfortable couch for you to lie on where you do not, as with traditional gynecological couches, put your legs in stirrups. With us, you rest your heels in mini-stirrups which most women find more comfortable.
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.
