After the scan we inform you about the risk of pre-eclampsia and fetal growth restriction and if increased we would recommend you further management.
In general, increased risk of pre-eclampsia and fetal growth restriction can be reduced by half with the administration of 150 mg of Acetylsalicylic acid (drug Godasal or Anopyrin, 150mg in the evening at bed rest from the 1st trimester up to 36 weeks). Additionally, regular follow-up growth scans at intervals of about 4 weeks are recommended and we would be happy to arrange them for you at our centre. If there is an increased risk of the development of maternal pre-eclampsia, we would suggest regular self-monitoring of blood pressure or at least regular check-ups of blood pressure and urine with your gynaecologist.
The whole examination with counselling takes around 15 minutes and you are welcome to bring your partner or someone close to accompany you through the examination. A detailed report with the results will be usually sent to you by email within a week.
