An increasing number of pregnant women are paying up to £ for extra scans; Sarah Louise Belcher, 29, had a High Street scan after she.
By Jennie Agg for the Daily Mail. And while for many such scans are a harmless treat, there are serious concerns about whether proper standards are being met — and even how safe extra scans may be. The little girl, who she named Maya, would go on to be delivered prematurely just before 31 weeks, and died six days later in January this year. While Sarah accepts that ultimately there was nothing anyone could have done to save Maya, she is tormented by the knowledge that she delayed getting medical help because the private scan suggested she had nothing to worry about.
I have to live knowing she went another two days without any doctors helping her. Sarah, 29, a legal PA from Uxbridge, Greater London, was 29 weeks pregnant when she started to feel unwell, and desperately wanted to know if her baby was OK. The firm has 32 clinics, which it says are all staffed by qualified sonographers or doctors and perform , scans a year.
The clinic referred the couple to hospital, and they were considering surgery to remove the pregnancy when an NHS scan revealed a heartbeat. But she reassured me that the baby was absolutely fine. I convinced myself I was over-reacting. It so happened that the following Monday Sarah had a non-pregnancy related hospital appointment, requiring a scan — and it was then that Sarah and Adam learned, to their horror, that Maya was anything but fine. They confirmed the person who had carried out the scan no longer worked for them and offered a refund.

About Our Clinic
Background and study aims Screening for pregnancy complications around delivery has not changed very much over the last 30 years. To determine whether a new approach, using ultrasound and blood tests, is effective at picking up high risk pregnancies, and 2. Whether intervening in the pregnancy, based on the result, reduces the risk.
The fun and excitement of seeing the developing baby on a scan is one of the high points of antenatal care, and we can offer scans throughout pregnancy.
Successful pregnancy requires the de novo creation of low-resistance utero-placental and feto-placental circulations and incomplete remodeling of this vasculature can lead to maternal or fetal compromise. Maternal BMI and fetal sex are known to influence vascular compliance and placental development, but it is unknown if these are independent or synergistic effects. Here we aim to investigate the impact of maternal obesity, fetal sex, and any interaction thereof on maternal cardiovascular adaptation to pregnancy, by assessing the physiological drop of uterine artery doppler pulsatility UtA-PI and umbilical artery doppler pulsatility index UA-PI over gestation.
The physiological drop in UA-PI was greater for female than male fetuses — No interactions between maternal BMI and fetal sex were found. Maternal cardiovascular adaptation to pregnancy is independently associated with maternal BMI and fetal sex. Our results imply sexual dimorphism in both maternal cardiovascular adaptation and feto-placental resistance.
