We often think of ultrasound scans as something that happens during pregnancy, but the same technology can also be used to investigate a wide range of different conditions. At the Birth Company clinic in Cheshire, we often perform gynaecological scans as well as private pregnancy scans.
The most common reason for having a gynaecological scan is to investigate symptoms that could be linked to your reproductive system. Many women experience problems such as irregular, painful or heavy periods. Other common gynaecological symptoms include pelvic pain, discomfort during sex, and unusual bleeding. If your GP or gynaecologist suspects that these symptoms could be linked to a gynaecological condition, then they may refer you for an ultrasound to confirm the diagnosis. We can also perform scans to assess your condition or to monitor how it has changed after you’ve been diagnosed. In some cases, gynaecological scans are also used as part of well woman screening or for a fertility assessment.
We can perform a range of different women’s health scans to investigate different aspects of your gynaecological health:
Gynaecological ultrasound scans are usually performed trans-vaginally so that we can get a closer look at your reproductive organs. We can sometimes use a trans-abdominal scan if you aren’t able to have an internal ultrasound, but it won’t provide as much information about your health.
When you visit us for a gynaecological scan in Cheshire:
We can learn a lot from an ultrasound scan of your reproductive organs. Depending on your reasons for having the scan, we might:
We will provide a complete ultrasound report of all of our findings, along with scan pictures to share with your GP or gynaecologist and add to your medical records. You will also be able to talk to your sonographer if you have any questions or concerns about the scan.
We had received possible worrying news from our NHS anomaly scan, without much information provided or confirmation. I am so pleased that we came to The Birth Company for reassurance, as we are now extremely happy that everything is fine. Shahrzad was fantastic and went through the whole anomaly scan thoroughly, explaining everything and looking in detail at each area. Nothing was rushed and she took her time to make sure baby was in the correct position to get the best results. We can’t thank her and Dr Gibb enough for the confidence they have given us. Would highly recommend The Birth Company for all scans.
' Professional and reassuring 'Helen Campbell
The sonographer was ready as soon as I arrived, and she was extremely calming, personable and professional. The scan and blood test where efficient without feeling rushed and all very easy. These appointments can feel uneasy and make you feel anxious but I felt reassured and in professional hands the whole time
I saw Kate throughout my first pregnancy and am now doing so again with my second. She is absolutely amazing, she explains everything really clearly, and has answered all sorts of bizarre questions and worries I have had. On top of being clinically excellent she is also just the loveliest person and always a pleasure to see.Sarah Elliott
We had the harmony test with the Birth Company and had a reassurance scan with sonographer Kirsty McGarry who was absolutely lovely and really put our minds at rest. We had been scared by our NHS dating scan and left feeling like there was something wrong. We explained the situation and was treated very professionally and with good care. Also speedy appointments also as I had phone in the morning and got an appointment by afternoon. So thankful.Ashley and Tom
Really friendly, efficient service. Great experience overall. Had the Panorama. My appointment was with Kate who was absolutely fantastic. The results came really quickly. Have a comparison with private healthcare elsewhere and must say that The Birth Company was just how I would like to be treated when I pay for medical services - attentively, calmly, friendly, in a pleasant environment that doesn't look like hospital. Top marks!Anna

The Birth Company has been excellent, providing timely scans and blood tests during my IVF treatment abroad. Staff are always friendly and extremely efficient. I would highly recommend coming here.
' Professional and friendly 'Lyndsey Dilla
When I first contacted the Birth Company I spoke to Danielle. She was fantastic. She went above & beyond to put me at easy & make the journey from Kent as stress free as possible. Every staff member that myself and my husband have come into contact with have been approachable, professional and friendly. Kate scanned me the first time and put me completely at easy. Lisa on reception is professional and very approachable. Highly recommended
' Highly recommended 'Emelie
Donald was so lovely! I was so nervous as I have a bad history and he was super quick and confirmed my baby's heartbeat as quickly as he could. He spent time showing me the baby and the anatomy and it was the best money I have ever spent! The reception girls were lovely too - considering they deal with babies day in day out they were super excited for me! Thank you so much one and all! If only I lived in London and could have all my scans with you!
