OTHER SERVICES 
 
UTERINE ARTERY DOPPLER 
The uterine artery is a blood vessel that is important in the early forming and working of the placenta. It supplies the placenta. Looking at the uterine artery blood flow helps to check if the placenta is working well. It can be useful in indicating if a woman is at a high risk of blood pressure problems such as pre-eclampsia or fetal growth problems. It is not a national screening test but some studies do suggest it provides additional information if performed at around 12 weeks. We offer at 20-24 weeks, we can consider 12 weeks on an individual basis. 
SCREENING FOR PRETERM BIRTH  
This is done by measuring the length of the neck of the womb or cervix. If the cervix is short there is a risk of having the baby very early (preterm birth). We offer this from 16 weeks.
