Questions about having a viability scan explained 

The NHS does not routinely offer viability scans. So if you are pregnant, a private viability scan can be a way to rest your mind about your pregnancy. It may be your first pregnancy and you may not know what to expect. If you have had fertility treatment, having a viability scan can reassure you.  
Yes, a viability scan can show that you are going to have twins. 
An early viability scan can be performed from 6 weeks but we believe it is better to wait until 7 weeks if you have no concerns.  
No, early viability scans are not known to be harmful and do not hurt the baby and do not cause miscarriage.  
We will provide you with a report on the day of the findings of the scan. Sometimes, scans may show an unexpected finding that a miscarriage has occurred, or the scan is not able to confirm an ongoing pregnancy. Where this happens, we will refer you to your GP or a private gynaecologist for further diagnosis and management. 
For mums undergoing fertility treatment, we offer reassurance scans because we know that the first trimester especially can be an anxious time. Sometimes pregnancy symptoms can cause concern especially if there has been a long journey to pregnancy. Our scans are performed by senior sonographers and doctors for that extra reassurance
