Later Dating Pregnancy Scan Costs
The later dating pregnancy scan includes photographs and a computerised report. Your sonographer will answer any questions you may have.
Cost – €160
What Is Involved?
Later dating pregnancy scans will:
- verify the baby’s heartbeat
- calculate the gestational age and determine estimated date of delivery
- look for multiples ( twins, triplets etc)
- determine that the baby is located normally within the womb and that the pregnancy is progressing normally at this stage
- examine placental site
42″ Ultrasound Scan Screen
The ultrasound is available for you to view on a 42” screen which is located on the wall at the end of the ultrasound couch. This allows you to view the images produced by the transducer. At this stage in pregnancy it may not be easy for you to make out what you are seeing on screen but the sonographer will explain what you are looking at.

Later Dating Pregnancy Scans FAQs
What is a later dating pregnancy scan?
A later dating pregnancy scan is carried out during the first few weeks or so of the second trimester for reassurance.
What kind of information will I receive during a later dating scan?
You will learn about your baby’s wellbeing and how the parts of the body are developing at this time. This scan can also offer a relatively accurate due date if you didn’t manage to attend us for an early pregnancy scan.
Baby’s heartbeat will be verified as viable during this scan. The location of your baby will also be checked.
We will also check the placental site.
What Our Patients Say
“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.”
“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.”
“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!
