Antenatal Care

You can have an enhanced 12-week ultrasound at the Harris Birthright Centre at King’s College Hospital – an international centre of excellence for fetal medicine.

This includes:

  • A more detailed scan, carried out by a specialist fetal medicine doctor
  • Results within an hour (rather than waiting 7-10 days)
  • The opportunity to discuss your scan results with the same doctor, straight away
  • An assessment of the risk of having your baby too early or of developing raised blood pressure
    • A fetal DNA (Harmony) test if there is an increased risk of Down’s syndrome. This is normally only available privately and avoids the needs for the standard, more invasive test.
