Bristol Pregnancy Scans and Tests

Pregnancy is a very special time for the mother to be, and for all of her family.

The fun and excitement of seeing the developing baby on a scan is one of the high points of antenatal care, and at the Spire Bristol Hospital we provide top quality, expert scans from 10 weeks.  

Our team of doctors, sonographers and midwives work in the NHS at Southmead Hospital, Bristol, which is recognised as one of the top maternity units in the country.

Call 0117 980 4070 to book your scan, or browse through this website for more details.

 Pregnancy Scans

We use the most up to date ultrasound machines, in comfortable surroundings, with time to look at your baby. We encourage patients to bring a family member or two and recommend that you keep your midwife informed of your visit to the clinic. We will provide printed images of your ultrasound scan as well as digital versions saved on a USB stick for you to take home and share with your family. There is no extra cost for this service.

The scans available are:

The Harmony Prenatal Test

The very latest, most accurate non-invasive method that screens for Down’s Syndrome.

Reassurance and Dating scans

This is our early pregnancy scan. It can confirm that all is well, and show the baby moving. You can also see and hear the heart beat.

We offer dating scans from 10 weeks to confirm that all is well, to date the pregnancy and provide an estimated date for delivery (EDD). This is also the best time to check for a twin pregnancy, a reassurance scan can also be performed at this stage.

Fetal Normality Scan

This scan is performed at 18 to 24 weeks, to check the vital internal structures of the baby, and check the sex if requested. It is performed by Mr Sherif Abdel Fattah, consultant in fetal medicine.

Reassurance and Growth scans

This is our later pregnancy scan, performed after 24 weeks. It can confirm that all is well by measuring the size of the baby to check the growth, look at the amount of fluid around the baby and see which way the baby is lying. If you have been told you have a 'low placenta' we recommend a scan at 36 weeks.

A reassurance scan can be performed at any stage of pregnancy, over and above the scans already mentioned.


Reassurance & Dating scan (10- 12 weeks) £120
Reassurance & Growth scan (after 24 weeks) £120
Fetal normality scan (18 - 24 weeks) £199
Harmony prenatal test £530
