Although there are always factors that affect whether we’re able to successfully carry out the scan, if you follow these simple tips, then it will greatly improve the results:
Relax! Baby can feel your tension, and won’t want to move about.
If you are less than 20 weeks please drink at least 2 pints of water, if you are 20 weeks plus please have an empty bladder.
Keep active. If you’re driving for a while, make sure you walk around a little before your scan to help get baby moving a little.
Try having a fizzy drink and/or a bar of chocolate 10 minutes prior to visit to try and get baby moving.
