What is the Growth and Doppler scan?

Growth or Wellbeing scan will assess baby’s development and will measure the head, abdomen and limbs, in particular. This helps us estimate your baby’s weight at birth.

We will also look at the position of placenta, the amount of amniotic fluid and will assess baby’s movements.

On top of this, we will perform a Doppler scan. Usually done between 36-40 weeks. You may need it earlier if there are any pregnancy complications or Health concerns. It measures the blood flow in different parts of your baby’s body, such as the umbilical cord, brain and heart. This helps to show whether the baby is getting all the oxygen and nutrients required via the placenta.

Doppler is also very valuable in assessing potential risk of preeclampsia.
