Fetal Breathing

You will see a baby's face looking upward in profile.

It is sniffing in (BLUE), and blowing out (RED) amniotic fluid through the nostrils.

There are two videos to download opposite, showing Single and Double Nostril Fetal Breathing.

PLEASE NOTE

Family children aged 5 or more may enjoy sharing the experience of viewing the new developing baby.

Recent experiences have emphasised that children younger than 5 years have shown no interest, and as a result, have invariably become disruptive and noisy. This makes concentration / scanning impossible at times.

Consequently, for Health and Safety reasons, and avoidance of wasted scanning times, we must request that children under 5 years of age should not be present at scanning appointments.

Thank you.

 

This is a family-run business, dedicated to offering a superior service at the lowest possible cost.

 

We do not use cheaper portable scanners, which may restrict image quality.
