Ultrasound scans use sound waves to build a picture of the baby in the womb. The scans are painless, have no known side effects on mothers or babies, and can be carried out at any stage of pregnancy. Talk to your midwife, GP or obstetrician about any concerns you have.
NHS.uk have a great description of ultrasound scans in pregnancy and our obstetrics and gynaecology ultrasound team have more information about what you can expect at your scans here at Barnsley Hospital.
You will be given the option to purchase a scan photograph of your baby. Photographs are £5 each or £10 for three. Photos are printed on a machine which will accept all denominations of cash, as well as contactless payments.
