"Scan pictures"

About: Bradford Royal Infirmary

I was absolutely furious I was happy going to find out the sex of my baby and get pictures of the actual baby not just its head! Especially since I'm paying for them.

But the technician told me the baby was a girl now they wrote on the paper they told me they didn't see so wasn't certain! I'd never in my life go back there especially to have a child or any scan pictures would never use this hospital again my scan really has upset me so much it's the only thing I've been looking forward to now I've wasted 6 pound on one picture!

Response from Bradford Royal Infirmary

I do appreciate that you were looking forward to having a clear picture of your baby and I am sorry that you were disappointed with the picture. Ultrasound scans are performed to check on the health of mum and baby and, although sonographers do strive to obtain the best pictures for mums and dads, babies do move around quite a lot and it can sometimes be difficult to obtain a clear picture. Thank you.
