Preparing for your Scan

Please arrive 5 minutes prior your appointment as there  will be some paperwork to be completed before your scan. If you have had a scan with Sneak Peek before and completed the paperwork, please arrive at your selected appointment time.

  • If you are between 16-20 weeks please have a full   bladder. After 20 weeks it is not necessary but can be useful if your baby is in a difficult position so we ask you to avoid going to the toilet 15-20 mins before your scan.
  • On some occasion babies don’t always behave the way we  would like them to!   

The clarity of the Images you will receive depends on a number of things including:

💚How many weeks pregnant you are (the ideal time for a scan to see baby’s chubby face is around 26-30 weeks).

💛How much fluid is in front of your baby's face (generally speaking the more fluid the better pictures).

💚The position of your baby (is he/she facing towards the camera or away).

💛The size of mum at scan (BMI). The larger a lady is the more difficult it may be to see the baby clearly.

💚The position of the placenta (if the placenta is at the front known as an anterior placenta pictures of your baby can be more difficult .

💛If there is something in front of your baby’s face such as hands, feet or chord.

💚How many baby’s there are. When there is more than one baby space can be very limited making getting those cute images that little bit more difficult.

If the sonographer decides that the images are not satisfactory we will ask you to come back at a later date for another scan.  If you are also not satisfied with your images at the time of the scan, please chat with our friendly staff at the time of your appointment so we can discuss the possibility of scanning your baby in a week or so time. We want your experience to be the best it can be.

Looking forward to meeting you all soon.
