These scans are an essential part of antenatal care, particularly in the second and third trimesters, ensuring that your baby is growing healthily and identifying any potential concerns early.

Understanding Fetal Growth Scans

These scans measure the baby’s head, abdomen, and femur length, as well as estimate foetal weight and evaluate the amount of amniotic fluid, placental position, and blood flow through various vessels.
