A pregnancy ultrasound scan sends sound waves through your womb to create a visual image of your baby, placenta, and uterus, as well as other pelvic organs. It allows us to gather valuable information about the progress of your pregnancy and the health of your unborn child. During the scan high-frequency sound waves are being transmitted through your womb that bounce off your baby. A computer then translates the echoing sounds into video images that reveal your baby’s shape, position, and movements projected on the wall to allow you to visualise what’s happening inside you.
Your health insurance covers two standard ultrasounds during the pregnancy. Furthermore there could be a medical indication which allows you to have more ultrasounds, to check the growth or position of the baby. These ultrasounds will also be covered by you health insurance.
