Baby Scans at Drumkeen

At Drumkeen Private Healthcare, we offer a range of baby scans: Early, Dating, Reassurance and Gender. With each, you will receive a report of the scan findings, which will be fully explained to you, and those all-important scan pictures to take home. We will also give you a selection of the images on a free USB which you can bring next time to store additional scan images. You can use the USB to store photos of your baby when she / he arrives!

Reassurance Scan (£65)

A Reassurance scan offers expectant mums further reassurance about your pregnancy e.g. when you have experienced abdominal pain or bleeding. Between 6 and 16 weeks, our reassurance scans confirm the ongoing viability of your pregnancy. (A £25 non-refundable booking deposit is required)

Gender Scan (£65)

The time has come to find out if you are having a son or daughter! A Gender Scan will give you the big news. Whilst your baby’s gender is decided at the very start of your pregnancy, baby is so small that we have to wait until 16 weeks for it to be clear on ultrasound – that’s why you have to wait a little while to come for your Gender Scan. (A £25 non-refundable booking deposit is required)

  • Available from 16-20 weeks
  • Scan and report
  • This scan is not diagnostic of fetal development
