Enhanced Support During Pregnancy
As a private well woman clinic, we understand that Pregnancy is a glorious time in a woman's life. However, it does come with its own challenges. From a single cell to an embryo to a full-grown foetus, the cycle of giving birth can be overwhelming and tough at times, especially for those undergoing miscarriage treatment. As such, to make this time special and as stress-free as possible for you, we offer enhanced support during pregnancy along with private early pregnancy scan & tests that ensure you have an amazing experience during pregnancy.
Staying healthy during pregnancy includes a lot more than just eating right, exercising and avoiding alcohol, caffeine and other junk foods. You also need proper medical care in order to ensure that you and your growing child gets the required nutrients which are essential to avoid any complications further down the line. As an early pregnancy assessment clinic in London, we offer support at every step of the way and monitor signs during a series of prenatal visits to ensure your pregnancy is going exactly as it should.
Importance of Early Pregnancy Check
A normal, full-term pregnancy is divided into three trimesters and lasts about 40 weeks. The first trimester covers 12 weeks (week 1–week 12) and during this period your body undergoes many hormonal changes which may lead to mood swings, cravings, morning sickness, tender breasts, weight gain or loss. The second trimester covers 16 weeks (week 13-week 28), while the third and the last trimester covers 12 weeks (week 29 – Week 40). The impact of pregnancy can be felt physically as well as psychologically as with each trimester the hormonal changes differ. As such, in order to effectively deal with these specific hormonal changes, scheduling an early pregnancy check or going for an early pregnancy scan is extremely important.
Prenatal Screening Tests
As a professional gynecologist in London, Mr N. Agarwal offers Prenatal Screening Tests that help determine if there is any risk involved in pregnancy, or if there is any birth defect or if there is any risk of chromosome abnormality. At our early pregnancy walk-in clinic, we offer assistance at all times and our prenatal screening includes ultrasound tests as follows:
- 6 Weeks (Placement Scan)
- 8 Weeks (Viability and Dating Scan)
- 10 Weeks (Scan with the IONA® test)
- 13 Weeks (Review Prior to Sign-off Scan)
Additional Routine Antenatal Blood Tests
Following the result from the above tests and sometimes, due to a patient’s medical history, additional tests might be required/recommended and may include the following routine Antenatal Blood Tests:
- Full Blood Count (FBC).
- Blood Group and Rhesus Type.
