Week 12



Scan at 12 weeks Bookmark this page

You can have this ultrasound scan at 11-13 weeks of pregnancy to check your baby’s development. It will also show if you’re having more than one baby.

This ultrasound scan can check your baby’s risk of having a condition like Down syndrome, as can other antenatal tests for chromosomal abnormalities like non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT).

Your health professional might send you to a private clinic or public hospital department for the ultrasound scan. The results will be sent to your health professional and possibly to you as well.
