Available between 16 – 38 weeks of pregnancy. This bonding  scan provides you with the chance to bond with your baby whilst we check their wellbeing and growth progress. We always aim to provide you with a fun and friendly experience, whilst only ever performing your scan by a qualified, experienced, and registered obstetric sonographer.

What’s included with your Bonding Scan:

  • Exclusive time with our qualified sonographer where you can ask any questions you like!
  • Locate your pregnancy
  • See & hear your baby’s heartbeat
  • Check your baby’s wellbeing
  • Date your pregnancy – to confirm how far along you are
  • Check your baby’s presentation/position for delivery (if far enough into your pregnancy)
  • Estimate fetal weight & measurements

Multiple pregnancies: There is a surcharge of £20 for multiples as we have to reserve a longer appointment time for you. Please contact us on 01623 272 662 so that we can organise this. If you book through the website, we may need to change the date/time of your appointment at short notice.


Digital download of all images (£10)

Ultimate Digital download of scan images and video (£20)

Additional prints (from £4 each)

Heartbeat bear (from £25)

*Free 4D preview only available until 32 weeks gestation. As room decreases in the womb, it gets more difficult to obtain an image of baby’s face.

Please note:

  • We are only able to provide scans to persons over the age of 18.
  • We are a non-diagnostic service. This scan should not replace any of your routine NHS scans as this is purely for non-diagnostic purposes.
  • Our guest policy is mum-to-be plus 6 guests. Guests can be adult or children so long as it is only 6 guests with mum-to-be in total.
  • The video recording has no audio capability.
  • The free 4D preview is a short snapshot in 4D mode. Please book our 4D Baby Scan if you would like a full 4D experience.

You must still attend your routine scans with the NHS.

Preparing for your Bonding Scan

You can prepare for your Bonding Scan by ensuring that you are properly hydrated in the 24 hours before your appointment. Please arrive with a full bladder.

Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete your paperwork

Please bring your pregnancy notes with you. We may not need them, but it is helpful if our qualified Sonographers need to refer to them at any stage during your scan.

It is sometimes necessary during the earlier stages of pregnancy to offer an internal scan. This is because it can be difficult to see the fetus via the abdomen at this stage. Many factors influence this (including hydration). Please ensure you arrive for your scan with a full bladder. As with all of our scans, you have the right to refuse or stop the procedure at any time.

Additional images, digital downloads of your scan images and a variety of products are available at Scan Baby Ltd to purchase on the day.
