This well baby pregnancy scan is performed to determine the position, growth and the health of the fetus by measuring the size of the fetal head, abdomen, thigh bone and calculation of an estimated fetal weight. We will also examine fetal movements, placental position, amount of amniotic fluid and assess blood flow from the placenta by colour flow doppler.We check to see if the baby may be feet-first or buttocks first (breech), side-on (transverse) or at an angle (oblique) presentation. The placental site will also be assessed to rule out placental praevia. We would include standard measurements and heart rate.
