This scan, which is available from as early as 5 weeks gestation determines viability of your pregnancy and well-being of the fetus, presence of fetal heartbeat, number of fetuses and measurements to determine estimated due date. It includes a written report and an internal / transvaginal scan should it be required. A complimentary re-scan is included at no extra charge if it is to early to confirm viability at your appointment.

This can be booked as often as required during the first trimester.

Nuchal Transluscency (NT) Measurement Scan (£100)

This scan is performed between 11 and 14 weeks of pregnancy to measure the clear (translucent) space in the tissue at the back of baby's neck as part of first trimester chromosomal screening. It is offered to all pregnant women on the NHS alongside a blood test.

If the NHS were unable to take this measurement at an appointment but have been able to take the blood sample and the NHS have confirmed they will accept a private NT Scan to accompany the blood test, you may book this scan appointment with a Sonographer.

This does NOT include the NT Scan blood test.

For high risk results or if you are past 14 weeks gestation Starlight Ultrasound offers Non-invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT).

This NT Scan costs £100 with £25 non-refundable deposit payable on booking.

Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) - (from £425)

Please call 01612601400 for priority booking.

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) uses cell-free DNA (cfDNA) derived from the pregnancy to evaluate possible chromosomal conditions in a pregnancy. NIPT is a prenatal chromosomal screening test that can be performed as early as 10 weeks of pregnancy using a single blood draw.

Beta HCG (£75)

A quantitative human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) test measures the specific level of HCG in the blood. HCG is a hormone produced in the body during pregnancy.

Quantitative (reported as a number) hCG testing (also called beta hCG) measures the actual amount of hCG present in the blood. It may be used to help diagnose an ectopic pregnancy, to help diagnose and monitor a pregnancy that may be failing, and to monitor a woman after a miscarriage.

Starlight offers Beta HCG blood tests with typical 4-hour turnaround for results.

Please note deposits for scans, tests or appointments come off the total price and are non-refundable.
