Your midwife or GP will only recommend an early scan if there's a concern, for example, if you've had bleeding in this pregnancy.
Your GP may also refer you for a scan if you've had a previous miscarriage.
If the pregnancy is very early then it is usually necessary to do an internal (vaginal) scan.
If the pregnancy is more than 7 weeks it may be possible to see enough abdominally (tummy scan), sometimes both scans are necessary to ensure all is well.
If your baby’s position is not favorable to do this on the day however, we cannot offer a free rescan for this purpose.Many women and their partners want the comfort of knowing their pregnancy is healthy during the first weeks.An Early Pregnancy Scan, also called a Viability Scan or Dating Scan from 6 weeks can usually determine whether there is a heartbeat and will give reassurance that all is well.We recommend that you present your anomaly scan results to your usual health care professional whose contact details we take at the time of booking.Your choice of a free rescan is included if your baby’s position is not favourable on the day for the primary purpose of this scan.
