Whether you are having your first baby or your fifth, it should be one of the most magical times in your life. And, for years, the process has always been the same. You find out that you are pregnant, and you and your partner visit the doctor to verify it. Then, you have a series of check-ups that you and your partner, your mum, or your bestie attend. One of those appointments includes a scan to see how your baby is doing and possibly to discern its sex. This is the big one. The most important appointment because it tells a lot about your pregnancy and your baby and it is typically shared with someone you care about.
New COVID-19 Rules
Enter 2020 and the COVID-19 crisis. Unfortunately, our amazing NHS is having to place restrictions on guests due to the pandemic, so at present, you are alone at the scan and at all other appointments too. And, while none of this seems fair at all, it is necessary to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. But what if you really want your spouse, your mum, or your bestie present during your reassurance scan?
Private 4D Ultrasound Clinics and Our Role During the Pandemic
There is a solution, and it’s offered here at Hey Baby 4D Bishop’s Stortford. We are very happy to say, that we have been able to adjust our services to keep everyone safe and therefore we can continue to provide a wide range of ultrasound scans including Early Reassurance, Wellbeing & Gender Reveal, Bonding & Reassurance, and Wellbeing & 4D VIP Baby Scans to women across Hertfordshire including Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City, Hoddesdon, Hatfield and beyond.
When we chat to our customers, the message we get time and again is that more women are choosing Hey Baby 4D Bishop’s Stortford, because they are allowed to have their partner or a friend (from the same household or social bubble) accompany them during all scans, plus up to two children under 11. This is often even more important for those attending our 8-week early reassurance scans. Being able to share this special moment with someone else and not having to be alone makes receiving essential information about the health and well-being of your baby a much more involved process for you and your partner, can provide much needed peace of mind and it gives you both the chance to bond with your unborn baby.
*During local and national lockdowns, the primary focus of all scans offered is the wellbeing and reassurance of mummy and baby. A secondary purpose of the scan can also be performed if there is time once the well-being checks have been carried out, which is the gender and 4D services. We are unable to offer rescans during the lockdown as the main objective would have been already performed.
