Harris Birthright Centre
What we do
The Harris Birthright Centre is a leading clinical unit and research centre for the assessment and treatment of unborn babies, caring for more than 10,000 patients each year. We see most patients within an hour of their arrival but the waiting time may sometimes be longer.
We routinely offer two ultrasound scans during pregnancy: one at 11-14 weeks and one between 20-23 weeks (the mid-pregnancy scan). Please print and complete the Scanning form and bring it with you when you come for your scan. You do not need to have a full bladder for these scans.
We encourage you bring a partner or supporter with you for your scans.
Preparing for your appointment
You do not need to have a full bladder for the antenatal scans.
