Cervical Scan

14 – 32 weeks. £99

It is not usual to look at the cervix routinely, but if a mother has had a previous preterm delivery, or has had treatment on her cervix in the past, it is worth having a cervical scan to measure the length of your cervix. Your own hospital will usually perform this for you if you are at high risk, but it can also be done with us at Future Babies. It is best done at around 23 – 24 weeks, but can be done at other gestations if there is a specific indication, so do ask if you are unsure.

This is an internal scan, as this is the most accurate means of assessing the length of the cervix. Please let us know if you would like a chaperone to accompany you during the scan.

We will only have a brief look at the baby during this appointment to check the heart beat and movements. If you would like us to take measurements and spend time checking the baby’s growth and wellbeing please book another appointment at the same time. Please call us on 0118 958 5050 if you have any questions or would like to book an appointment.
