Why attend Merrion Ultrasound?

1. We are a medically led clinic, with a great clinic team – so in other words we balance medical expertise, with peace of mind and a friendly, professional team.

2. We can also offer follow on treatment when there is a need because it is consultant-led. This offers patients continuity during pregnancy. Follow on care with a fetal medicine specialist at the National Maternity Hospital, Dublin, can be arranged if you so wish.

3. There is an increasing demand for prenatal ultrasound from patients, midwives and doctors. The current public health system in Ireland is unable to cope with the existing demand and many patients and doctors seek ultrasound services in the private sector.

4. Merrion Ultrasound exists to address the deficit in private services and is differentiated from existing private ultrasound services in that it is medically led delivering an unrivalled peace of mind through service excellence.

5. Individually designated appointment times allow you to avail of unrivalled comfort and privacy in a unique environment.

6 State-of-the-art equipment combined with highly qualified and experienced fetal ultrasound specialists allows Merrion Ultrasound to provide a fetal diagnostic service that is second to none.

7. 42″ screens in each ultrasound room allow you and your partner to see your scan clearly and in complete comfort.

8. Merrion Ultrasound is conveniently located in Dublin 2 and offers ultrasound for all stages of pregnancy including early pregnancy scans, nuchal scans, anatomy and growth scans. Merrion Ultrasound is open to all women not just those attending the National Maternity Hospital.

9. Last but certainly not least, our team are not only professionals with a wealth of experience, but many of us are parents also, and quite a few of us are also women who have been pregnant ourselves and given birth.

What Our Patients Say

Gráinne Macken

This is my second visit to Merrion Fetal, I was very pleased on both occasions. Lovely quiet waiting room, appointment was on time. The 20-week scan is very detailed we enjoyed watching our baby on the large TV screen. We got some beautiful photos. The nurse was very pleasant and talked us through all the measurements and anatomy. I would highly recommend this scanning clinic.”

Áine Gibney

I had the best experience at the Merrion Fetal Health clinic for my 20-week big scan. The staff were so friendly and so nice and the lovely lady who did my ultrasound scan was amazing. She was so thoroughgoing to absolutely everything and gave me such reassurance on how my baby was growing and developing. I would recommend any Mother to be to attend here if you are looking for a comfortable, reassuring and super pleasant experience.”

Linda O'Sullivan

Highly recommend! We had an early scan due to a little scare at the start of pregnancy and then another at 12 weeks to make sure all was good again. Helen who was scanning on both days was fantastic. We felt totally relaxed and un-rushed while she took her time finding the best angle of baby to get us the clearest pictures as keepsakes all while making sure everything was perfect with baby. She reassured us throughout and I can honestly say it was the best money we ever spent getting both scans done.

Please let Helen know we are 18 weeks now and flying along Highly recommend!

We had an early pregnancy scan and a harmony test at Merrion Fetal Health and I cannot recommend them enough. Michéle... did both procedures for us and I have to say, I've never felt more cared for and supported. She could not have been more professional but also kind and excited with us. We had experienced pregnancy loss previously and every experience with her has helped us to heal in a way that I didn't know we needed. She truly made a difference and we won't forget her! Thank you Michéle! read more

My husband and I had a very positive experience at Merrion Fetal Health. All staff from reception to the nurse who saw... us were very friendly and efficient. We only had to wait a few minutes extra beyond our scheduled time and the scan was clearly explained as the nurse moved around different parts of our baby's anatomy. The nurse had a good sense of humour as well when our baby did the metal hand gesture towards the start of the scan! I would have no hesitation in recommending Merrion Fetal Health to anyone for pregnancy related reasons.read more

I had the most amazing experience having the Harmony PreNatal test done at the Merrion Fetal Health. The whole process... of booking for an appointment, taking the test and getting the results took a week.At the clinic I was treated with so much care and respect by the midwifery that explained how the test works, what it can happen and also reassured that they were there to support me whatever the results are.I got a call from the clinic at the day they had the results and was also super happy and excited to know if it was a boy or a girl which is something you are able to know with the test. If you are in doubt to have this test done or not, please do contact them and I can assure you that they will give you all the necessary information and support!read more

I've been here for the harmony test and had truly great experience, the consultant gave detailed information during the... visit, had engaging discussion about the baby and while my partner was not allowed in the room due to COVID-19 restrictions, we've got some nice pictures from the scan and detailed report with fetal measurements on it. Unfortunately, my experience was not so good with the 20 week anatomy scan that I did in here. Even though my husband was allowed in, they reduced the time of the visit to 15min, so the sonographer was rushed to tick off all the boxes and did not discuss anything with us, nor we received any report and pictures were all blurred and nothing much to see from them. On top of that, the big screen was not in function this time, so I had to twist my neck to be able to follow what's shown on the screen. After few days of worrying what the result of the scan would be, to not getting any information out of it, so I will need to repeat the scan somewhere else to get the peace of mind.read more
