Early Pregnancy Support

Early pregnancy can be an anxious and difficult time as you wait for your NHS scan at 12 weeks to confirm that a longed for pregnancy is growing.  Waiting can be stressful if you have symptoms such as pain or bleeding and it can be especially difficult to cope if you have had problems in previous pregnancies such as miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy.

Our Specialist Clinic runs weekly and is based in our Motherwell Clinic. Overseen by our Medical Director, Consultant Obstetrician Gynaecologist Dr Evelyn Ferguson and our specialist early pregnancy midwives, Elaine Gregor and Louise McCabe, can support you at the early stages of pregnancy.  They can arrange to scan you from 6 weeks onwards if you have concerns or symptoms of possible miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy.  This will hopefully reassure you about the progress of your pregnancy.  Sadly not all pregnancies progress normally with 1 in 4 pregnancies ending in miscarriage.  Ectopic pregnancy occurs if the pregnancy grows in the wrong place and this occurs in 1 in 80 pregnancies.  If problems are detected, they can help you access appropriate care from your midwife or obstetrician.

Recurrent Miscarriage

Rarely some women experience recurrent miscarriage which means the loss of a pregnancy less than 14 weeks gestation 3 times in a row.  This is very distressing.  The NHS will usually only offer tests after 3 early losses.  The routine tests are for antiphospholipid syndrome (sticky blood caused by antibodies), inherited thrombophilias (sticky blood caused by blood clotting disorder) and ultrasound to check the shape of your womb.  If you are concerned about recurrent miscarriage we can provide these tests at ABC4D.  We can also provide testing for thyroid problems, either over-active or under-active thyroid, as well as thyroid autoantibodies, which can be associated with miscarraige.

Another routine test in the NHS is genetic testing of any tissue passed at miscarriage.

Although we cannot test miscarriage tissue, we can arrange for you and your partner to have chromosome (genetic) tests on your blood to see if there could be a problem with how your chromosomes combine together in the baby (translocation).  This blood test is not generally available on the NHS unless a genetic problem has been identified in the miscarriage tissue (which can be difficult to obtain if you miscarry at home).
