We provide scans throughout pregnancy, ranging from a reassurance scan / dating scan from 7 weeks to gender scans, 3D / 4D scans, together with growth and presentation scans and scans for Estimated Fetal Weight (EFW) later in pregnancy. At My Baby Scan Burscough, our professional team will ensure its love at first sight when they skilfully show you images of your baby. My Baby Scan Burscough is fully registered and has been inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and awarded a GOOD rating in all areas.
A wide range of keepsakes and gifts to share with your family and friends are also available to purchase, including the ever-popular range of heartbeat teddys, which provide a recording of baby’s heartbeat in an adorable choice of bears.
My Baby Scan Burscough is located at the Burscough Wharf, which is a 2011 redevelopment of former canal side buildings, designed to provide a vibrant courtyard setting encompassing retail and dining experiences to compliment the developing town of Burscough. At the Wharf there is ample free parking available, disabled access and baby changing facilities.
At our premises within the Wharf we have a fabulous modern studio with a bright reception and waiting area, with seating for 5 in the scan room and plenty of space for others to stand. Children are also more than welcome to come and meet their new little brother or sister to share in the excitement. Our ultrasound machine is the latest GE technology with HD imaging. We have a large wall mounted television so you can see your baby more clearly, watch your baby move, suck their thumb or even wave if you're lucky! There are a range of packages depending upon gestation of pregnancy and gifts available to make your scan extra special.
We can tell you the gender of baby during your scan, or write it down (without showing you!!) for your gender reveal. We have giant cannons and balloons in stock, or we can wrap up a heartbeat bear for your surprise.
NON INVASIVE PRE-NATAL TESTING (NIPT)
We now provide NIPT from 10 to 22 weeks of pregnancy with our Consultant Obstetrician. This screening for Down's Syndrome, Edward's Syndrome and Patau's Syndrome gives much greater accuracy than the current combined screening offered by the NHS. Please look at our package page for further information and contact us to arrange an appointment if you feel this screening is for you.
Who we are
The Directors of My Baby Scan Burscough, Mandy and Julie have been friends for over 30 years since working together as Radiographers. They saw a gap in the market to provide high quality ante-natal ultrasound services to the local community performed by local professionals, also to attract people in to Burscough from further afield. They have used local services to source ideas for their clinic to make it an integral part of the community.
Since the company started trading in July 2017, My Baby Scan Burscough won the prestigious Best New Business Award in 2018 from the North West Enterprise Vision Awards (EVA), been awarded a GOOD rating in all areas on CQC inspection in 2019 and also been featured on Teen Mom UK 2019. We are passionate about our business and aim to provide the best possible service and care.
