Q. Can you have a baby scan at 8 weeks?

At Mourne Scan Clinic, the earliest we can scan from is 6 weeks gestation. This is worked out by your LMP (last menstrual period), so this is 6 weeks from the first day of your last period.
You can book in for an early pregnancy in Mourne Scan Clinic any time after this. As every woman is different, they will ovulate at different times so there may be a difference of a few days. You may be offered a further scan at no extra charge if you are too early for a scan. We will explain this to you during the scan.

Early pregnancy can be a very exciting time, but it can also be very worrying for many people. Whether you are a first-time mummy, have had children already or if you have experienced miscarriage or pregnancy complications previously, an early pregnancy scan can provide much need reassurance.
As your first scan with the NHS may not be to 14 weeks, you may want to book an early scan before this.
