We at MUMS understand that the first few months of pregnancy can be quite an anxious time for many women with various concerns as to whether the pregnancy is developing normally or that it may result in a miscarriage or even an ectopic pregnancy.
Sometimes it is requested by a doctor or midwife to confirm that your pregnancy is healthy (in this case your scan is often called a viability scan) and to calculate the date when your baby is due (usually referred to as a dating scan).Ultrasound scanning in early pregnancy can provide that confirmation and peace of mind that you need.Most women in early pregnancy experience no problems, but not all.At around seven weeks of pregnancy, it’s reasonably common for women to have their first ultrasound.This can be for many reasons but the most common is to confirm pregnancy and to check that the embryo is viable and “everything’s ok”.
