Perhaps you’d like relationship support or are facing PND or anxiety at the moment? Maybe you’re seeking advice on fostering, adoption, gay parenting or surrogacy?

Everything you need to know about scans – and more!

If you hadn’t guessed already, trying to make life easier for mums is something we’re passionate about here at Channel Mum HQ. That’s why we’ve launched the Channel Mum Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy Scans to help demystify the world of ultrasound scans and to show you what to expect.

Our Ultimate Pregnancy Scan Guide shows you what happens during your ultrasound scan, the different kinds of scans you can have and follows our vlogger Emily having a private scan at 28 weeks at Window To The Womb. You can see her have a 2D, 3D and 4D scan and even see how the gender of her baby is identified. Is it a boy or a girl? Watch the video to find out!

Side note: Did you know you could find out the gender of your baby from as early as 16 weeks?

We’ve even included a fruit diary of how your baby grows rapidly from something smaller than a poppyseed to the size of a watermelon in nine months.

Scans are such a momentous part of any pregnancy and such a special time for you and your partner to finally get a glimpse at what’s going on in your tummy and listen to your baby’s heartbeat.

If you’re anything like us, during your pregnancy you’ll be searching high and low to try and see what your baby looks like at each week of pregnancy, so we feel pretty lucky to have been able to secure footage of 2D, 3D and 4D real scans from our lovely friends at Window To The Womb.

If you’re expecting a baby or curious about what each week of pregnancy can be like, make sure you check out our pregnancy week by week guides for more pregnancy videos from mums at the same stage as you are, all the way through your pregnancy.
