We have tried to answer all your possible questions below. If you still have a question then please contact us.
If you need to cancel a scan within 24 hours of your appointment then your payment is lost. This cannot be rescheduled as we would be unable to sell this space in such a short time.
If you need to cancel your appointment more than 24 hours before the appointment then a refund can be made minus an admin charge of £5.
(This covers our card charges, text charges, lost sales as cannot resell and paperwork costs)
If more than 24 hours before the appointment you wish to reschedule your appointment then this can be done at no cost providing you call and re arrange directly with the studio.
As we always want to get the best images for you when you have your scan with us we have put a few handy tips together to help get baby in the right position on the day.
No. Despite extensive studies in recent years, ultrasound has not been shown to cause any harm to mum or baby. Ultrasound scans have been used in pregnancy for decades and this works on the exact same principles as your 2D hospital scan with the software creating the 4D images using sound waves. Our sonographers carrying out your scans will always follow the correct guidelines to ensure the safety of you and baby.
We do offer an extended length scan for multiple pregnancies. This is your choice and not mandatory, you can book a standard length scan package (10 mins) but please be mindful that if time runs out that a rescan cannot be provided.
We welcome family, friends and children to share your experience. We have large scan rooms with HD projector screens. We have seating for 6 in each studio and additional standing room.
Your appointment will last around 30-45 mins from entering the studio including your scan experience (10 minutes), selecting your images and the possibility of needing a bounce on our birth ball if you baby is being shy.
We will always make every effort during the scan to get clear images of your baby, however ultimately we cannot move your baby or placenta. If for any reason, we are unable to do your scan at your appointment time we may encourage you to go for a walk and have glass of cold water to try get baby moving around. If this still doesn’t work we will where appropriate offer a free re-scan, we will rearrange your appointment and try again.
The primary purpose of all our scan packages is the protection and maintenance of the health of mother and baby. We are a non diagnostic service so do not look for anomalies during the scan experience. If we see something on the scan that we feel needs a referral we will of course advise you appropriately.
A visit to Meet your miracle should not be a replacement for your NHS care.
We will explain everything you are seeing and engage you fully in your scan experience. If sadly we cannot see a heartbeat we will support you to contact your midwife or local NHS maternity unit.
Our sonographers and midwife sonographers have many years of experience and are fully trained to deliver the Meet your Miracle scans.
A full bladder is NOT necessary for our scans unless you are earlier than 12 weeks gestation. This is because a full bladder can help to lift the uterus so it is clearer for our abdominal scans.
At MYM we choose not to offer transvaginal scans as they are invasive and can be provided by the NHS should they be necessary. Our scans are available from 8 weeks abdominally.
CQC – Care Quality Commission
We are a registered provider with the Care Quality Commission, this ensures the quality of our service is of the highest standard and your safety is assured.
We are remaining open and adopting safety measures throughout our studios. On arrival we will take your temperature and ask that you sanitise. Masks are also mandatory for over 11’s. You are permitted to bring 2 people to the scan with you from the same household/support bubble. Your party can not exceed 3 in total. If you are felling unwell prior to your scan please contact us and do not attend. The primary purpose of all our scan packages is the protection and maintenance of the health of mother and baby.
Can all ladies being scanned wear a mask to protect our sonographers as well as yourself. Everyone else will be expected to wear masks as per government guidelines.
