The Fetal Medicine Clinic provides Ultrasounds Scans on site from as early as the first trimester, and continuing through to the end of the pregnancy, to provide mothers with accurate and detailed information about the baby’s development, growth and well-being. These high quality assessments and scans help your doctor to provide the very best healthcare for mother and baby, utilising the best medical evidence available. The aim is to not only to improve the outcome for the baby, but also to assess the chance of developing complications in the mother that can be associated with problems during the pregnancy.
