We provide scans throughout pregnancy, ranging from a reassurance scan / dating scan from 6 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 with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
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.
