Pregnancy & Gynaecological Ultrasound

Our onsite ultrasound services include a comprehensive range of specialised services for women’s health including:

Obstetric Ultrasound: Obstetric ultrasound is the use of ultrasound during the pregnancy. Ultrasound is considered to be a safe, non-invasive, accurate examination of the baby.

NIPT: Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing is a simple blood test (from 10 weeks of gestation) providing pregnant women with an extremely accurate, early, screening test.

PRE PREGNANCY COUNSELLING

For many individuals/couples either; embarking on the journey to become pregnant, or already being pregnant, can be a very confusing period. We at Siles Health are hoping to help alleviate that confusion by providing you with supportive Genetic Counselling services. Every pregnancy has a risk of abnormality, this can either be inherited or not inherited (sporadic). The main purpose of a Genetic Counsellor is to provide you with up to date information about the options available and emotional support so you can make informed decisions about your pregnancy.


OBSTETRIC ULTRASOUND

Obstetric ultrasound is the use of ultrasound during the pregnancy. Ultrasound is considered to be a safe, non-invasive, accurate examination of the baby, without the use of radiation. It has progressively become an indispensable obstetric tool and plays an important role in the care of every pregnant woman.

SPECIALIST ULTRASOUND & CTGs

Fetal Monitoring – Cardiotocography (CTG): A CTG is a monitor that checks the baby and the mother’s heart rate; it is usually performed in the third trimester of pregnancy. Your baby’s heart rate and activity is a good indicator of how healthy your unborn baby is. It will also detect any contractions you may be having.
