All pregnant women have routine scans at both 12 and 20 weeks.

In some cases important defects / problems with the baby are missed and the parents then lose the opportunity for treatment or to decide whether to continue with the pregnancy.

Problems that can be missed include:

  • Down Syndrome
  • Spina Bifida
  • Physical Abnormalities
  • Problems with the heart
  • A small jaw that may indicate other problems
