Foetal doppler-detail

What is a Doppler Scan?

A doppler scan is a type of ultrasound scan that helps to evaluate your child’s health. It evaluates the flow of blood to different parts of the baby’s body, such as the brain, umbilical cord and heart. It reveals a piece of essential information such as whether your baby is receiving all nutrients and oxygen through the placenta or not.

At Motherhood Hospitals, the Foetal Doppler Scan is performed at the same time as a regular ultrasound. It uses the same equipment as a routine ultrasound. Motherhood Hospitals’ trained sonographers help to give a clear image of the wellbeing and the health of your baby. Best results can be obtained if a doppler scan is performed during the second and third trimesters.

Why do you need a Doppler Scan?

Doppler scan is performed during pregnancy if:

  • Your baby is affected by rhesus antibodies
  • You have previously had a smaller baby
  • You have a low or high BMI
  • You are carrying twins or more
  • You are experiencing fewer movements of your baby
  • Your baby is affected by parvovirus (slapped cheek disease)
  • You smoke
  • Your baby is not growing at a healthy rate
  • You have high blood pressure or diabetes
  • You have previously suffered the loss of your baby at the time of the birth or experienced a late miscarriage
