"Dating Scan"

About: Aberdeen Maternity Hospital / Obstetrics (Maternity care)

(as a service user),

I went for a repeat dating scan earlier this week after my baby wouldn't lie in the correct position to get all of the measurements that were needed to date my pregnancy. I was scanned by Alison and she was so lovely, I felt quite anxious after the previous scan that the same would happen again plus being without my partner made it extra nerve-wracking. Alison put me completely at ease and spent lots of time showing me all of the different parts of baby and reassuring me that they look normal. She has such a kind and friendly manner, any mum to be would be very lucky to have Alison scan them. I felt so reassured after the scan and even when we weren't able to get a measurement for screening, Alison arranged for the screening midwife to call me to further settle my anxieties.

Dear lc1990

Thank you for taking the time to get in touch and for providing such great feedback. We do appreciate how difficult the situation has been for everyone with the lack of partners/visiting.

Alison will be delighted to know that she helped you feel at ease and reassured and I will make sure that she receives this feedback.

Thanks again and may I wish you well in the rest of your pregnancy.

Kind Regards

Liz Cheung
