Due to COVID restrictions, appointments are available for medical reasons only including investigation of symptoms and/or reassurance regarding your pregnancy. The primary medical reason for the scan will take precedence but we will provide gender and/or imaging if possible if this is part of the package. We are not permitted to offer rescans unless for a medical reason. The client may bring their “Birth partner” (aged over 18) into the scan. Covid Policy
