If you need to arrange a baby scan or gynaecological ultrasound in Cheshire, then you may be considering having your scans at a private clinic. Although you can have some scans on the NHS, there are some very good reasons to visit a private ultrasound clinic instead.
One of the biggest advantages of choosing private care is that you will have a lot more choice and flexibility. You will be able to choose the private ultrasound clinic in Cheshire where you want to have your scans. You can select a location that will be easy for you to reach and make sure that the sonographers will be as experienced as possible. It will also be a lot easier to make appointments at times that suit you when you choose private care, rather than having to wait for an appointment to become available.
Another benefit of visiting a private ultrasound centre in Cheshire is that you will be able to access services that might not be available through the NHS. At The Birth Company clinic in Alderley Edge, you can have reassurance scans, gender scans and 4D scans that you would not be able to have on the NHS.
You will also be able to schedule more scans during your pregnancy than are covered by the NHS. Most women will only be offered two routine NHS scans during pregnancy, with extra scans only available when there is a medical need. At a private clinic, you can choose how many scans you have and when you want to have them.
Arranging a private baby scan is very easy. All you need to do is book an appointment at your preferred clinic. You can make the appointment directly or speak to your antenatal care provider first. If you need the scan for medical purposes, then your midwife or obstetrician may have referred you for a scan, which you can choose to have at a private clinic.
You can choose to have all of your scans privately, but it is also possible to have your routine scans through the NHS and then to visit a private clinic for additional scans. You might only want to have one scan, such as a 4D ultrasound, or to visit for regular scans so that you can see your baby more often.
It is also possible to have other types of scans privately in Cheshire, including IVF scans and gynaecological ultrasounds. You will usually be given a referral letter by your fertility clinic, GP or gynaecologist to explain why you need these kinds of scans. Getting a referral can be important if you’re planning to use health insurance to pay for your scans as it is a requirement for some policies.

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.

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

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!
