Whilst being pregnant is a joy for most, for some, it can also be a time of high anxiety, worry and stress. Early Image is the only facility in Melbourne that offers 24/7, around the clock, reassurance scans for pregnancy.
It is a scan designed solely to reassure Mum and Dad that baby is doing well. Many couples have miscarried during previous pregnancies and are naturally nervous, many want to check baby is OK before they spend hundreds of dollars on the NIPT/Harmony test or just want to make sure that baby is on the right track before their 20 weeks anomaly scan. Whatever reason you may have we will spend time showing you your baby movements, measuring the heartbeat and checking its growth. We will record live video clips and take still images and transfer the whole lot to your phones as soon as the scan is over.
You don’t need a doctor’s referral and there will be no one else out in the waiting room so that we can have you in and out quickly to alleviate your fears and minimise unnecessary stress.
“ Such a Godsend to have a 24/7, professional, late night ultrasound place to go to. My husband and I, having been trying for 4 years to get pregnant, were just about to start IVF, and I found out we conceived naturally. I have been constantly stressing about every little thing due to being 6 weeks along. The ultrasound found the sac immediately, tonight has made me feel at ease” said Rachy.
Aleisha’s review on Google said,
“When I walked into Early Image I was in a bad place. The 20-week scan I had at 1:00 PM earlier that day did not go to plan. I didn’t see my baby or the heartbeat and was told to just lay back and not ask any questions. After this, I was left sobbing in the car so I decided to I made make a phone call to Early Image and was told I could come in at 3:00 PM that day. After their scan I was so happy, we were having a boy I had seen my baby and his heartbeat! I will be going back to have a 5D scan done there too.
“It is important to understand,” says Julia after her scan “These ultrasound scans aren’t standard medical scans – not equivalent to that in a medical ultrasound clinic – for example, internal scans aren’t possible, no films are provided, no medical advice is given”.
Often Emergency Departments have a long wait period and may even turn you away until the next day if they don’t believe the patient’s symptoms are life threatening. Whilst Early Image technicians are not doctors if they do detect an issue with your baby’s heartbeat or movement they inform you and recommend you speak to your GP or attend an Emergency Department immediately.
We only scan on the tummy as we do not provide internal scans, as such we can only offer reassurance scans to those that are over 6 weeks
