Ideally you should have your 1st Trimester bloods/ Maternal Serum done at least 7 full working days prior to your appointment with us. We like to scan you between 12 and 13 weeks 6 days of pregnancy.

We offer the most sensitive and comprehensive risk assessment for your baby between 12-14 weeks which includes pre-eclampsia and fetal growth restriction.

We are currently the only practice in Tasmania that does this.

Traditional chromosomal abnormalities such as Down’s Syndrome continue to be assessed.

Sound waves are used instead of radiation which makes them safe.
