All of our scans are completed primarily for the health and well-being of our patients. As such all scans are completed for a medical need.

All of our scans are completed primarily for the health and well-being of our patients. As such all scans are completed for a medical need.
These are unprecedented times, all extras included in a scan (such as the 4D imaging element) can now not be included in your scan to protect you and our staff.
To continue to provide a medical service the core medical elements of all of our scan appointments will continue. You will be provided with a full medical report as normal. Any scans that have been booked that include 4D imaging will now be changed to our well-being scan only (automatically) and the price will be changed accordingly.
We are aware the NHS are under unprecedented pressure and want to ensure all pregnant women have access to diagnostic ultrasound services to continue to monitor their pregnancy safely.
Window to the Womb and firstScan are working with a number of NHS trusts to support core obstetric ultrasound services, providing relief to hospitals wherever possible. If we can offer this service to you, you will be notified by your antenatal care provider. We cannot take direct bookings for NHS scans as this is on a hospital by hospital basis and would need to be booked directly by them.
You, alongside our amazing colleagues, are our primary concern and we will do whatever we can to help in these difficult times.
It is vitally important that you attend any appointment with only one guest. For everybody's safety, we will be enforcing this in all clinics.
To ensure our Mums continue to receive additional pregnancy reassurance, we are offering a Fetal Health Check scan. This is available from 16-42 weeks and includes a fetal health check, report, digital images, growth checks (from 20 weeks), estimated weight (from 26 weeks) and gender confirmation if required. Please note that this supports your NHS 12 & 20 week anomaly scans and does not replace them.
At Window to the Womb we know that pregnancy is the most magical time for parents. Ultrasound scans are the only way of providing you with essential information about the health, well-being and development of your baby. The primary purpose of all Window to the Womb scan packages is the health and well-being of your baby as we know from experience that this is the first priority of every single expectant mother that we see. Additionally private baby scans can also allow you and your family to start the vitally important process of bonding with your unborn baby; there is significant evidence of the value of this early relationship building.Team Window to the Womb

Welcome to Window to the Womb
The teams at all our Window to the Womb clinics understand that pregnancy is a life experience that you will remember for ever and want to share with your loved ones. All of our clinics use the highest specification ultrasound technology and employ fully qualified medical professionals and we are privileged to offer you a way of checking that your pregnancy is progressing normally in private, comfortable and professional clinics.
Additionally, many of our packages use 4D technology to allow you and your family to share the amazing first glimpses of your unborn baby and start the vitally important process of bonding with your baby.
We have been scanning expectant mums for over 15 years and have already introduced over 250,000 babies to their parents. All of our scans start with a diagnostic examination which allows our medical professionals to check that all is well with baby at any stage of pregnancy from 16 to 40 weeks.
Our Well-being scan (which is similar to the ultrasound scans that you will have at your hospital) allows us to check the well-being of your baby and you will receive a Well-being Report.
You can add gender confirmation and/or one of our amazing 4D or HD scans to the well-being check. Our gender scans are 99.9% accurate from only 16 weeks whilst our 4D scan packages allow you and your family to get up close and personal with your unborn baby in a way that you never thought possible.
Thanks to the combination of our years of experience, our highly qualified and trained team of Sonographers & Scan Assistants and our top specification equipment, a Window to the Womb baby scan will allow you to enjoy the best reassurance possible coupled with an amazing first introduction to your baby in their protected little world.
