Had a growth scan at the clinic last week. The sonographer was lovely, polite and pleasant. However, I do not feel that we received good value for money in comparison to other private scans I have had. I was pretty disappointed upon leaving the clinic as I was looking forward to this scan for a few weeks.
I have been to another private clinic where I had a scan (at the same price) and the sonographer was accompanied by someone else who actively pointed out parts of the baby during the scan. During my scan at Starlight there was only the sonographer in the room and although she was lovely, half of the time we didn’t even know what we were looking at and had to keep asking for clarification. The baby was in a awkward position which is fine but things could have still been pointed out a lot more.
Perhaps it would have been helpful to have someone else accompany the sonographer to help us understand what we were looking at or for the sonographer herself to point out things more. I understand she had to concentrate but as an experience for us it was disappointing. Staff were all lovely though.
Thanks for the feedback Marium.
It’s useful information which we’ll reflect on and ensure all our Sonographers talk through the scan which is what normally happens.
We’re glad everyone was polite and friendly to you.
It might be because it was a growth scan and the Sonographer felt you wanted reassurance on growth measurements that she didn’t point out other aspects of baby but we’ll feed this back to Jade.
We also recommend our 5D bonding scans for more of an experience of seeing baby
Thanks again as we value all feedback which is gratefully received
