Dating scan leicestershire
During school holidays the Visitor Centre closes at 5pm, Monday – Friday.
A dating scan is usually the first ultrasound scan you will have when pregnant.
The main purpose is to establish the number of weeks you are pregnant and make an estimated date of expected delivery.
Your named midwife is there to support you during the steep learning curve of the early days to help make your transition to parenthood smooth and effortless.
Some families choose to see the midwife 2 or 3 times for the first week and then weekly until baby is 6 weeks.
An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves and their echoes to create pictures of your growing baby.
