Medical ultrasound scans
During your pregnancy a number of standard ultrasound scans will be offered, which are covered by your health insurance:
- The ultrasound that renders the due date between 10-12 weeks of pregnancy
- Anomaly scan around 20 weeks of pregnancy.
- Ultrasounds to check the growth of the baby (note: only on indication)
- The positioning of the placenta around 32 weeks (note: only on indication)
- The positioning of the baby around 35 weeks of pregnancy.
Ultrasound to confirm the vitality of the pregnancy
Around 8 weeks of pregnancy it is possible to perform the first ultrasounds. This is to determine the vitality of the pregnancy. The health insurance only covers this ultrasound in case of blood loss. At Nuvola we offer this ultrasound as a service to all our clients.
Because this ultrasound scan is early in pregnancy, it is a vaginal ultrasound. Scans made after 10 weeks of pregnancy are made through the stomach.
Fun ultrasound scans
Nuvola also offers ultrasound scans for fun. These scans are made by the midwife to have a look at your little one. Maybe you are curious about the gender of the baby, maybe you want to see how the baby is positioned. Nevertheless, this means these ultrasound scans are at your own request and this means they are not covered by your insurance. We offer different kind of ultrasounds as you see in the information below. Images can be saved on a USB stick. The costs of a USB stick are 10 euro. We use our own USB stick to make sure no viruses are transmitted to our scan. Some ultrasound scans include the USB.
Be aware that we may notice unexpected particulars during a fun ultrasound scan. In that case we will always inform you of this.
