Amanda & the Team are fantastic! So friendly, helpful, informative and just an all round wonderful personalised experience, so much so that after our first early pregnancy scan at 8 weeks, we ended up going back….14 more times! We had almost everything available including numerous reassurance scans, growth and gender scan, the NIPT testing, anomaly scan and 3D/4D growth scans. In addition to attending some of the classes available on site, antenatal classes and the Baby First Aid course.

The majority of our scans were with Amanda, who is an absolutely wonderful person, such positive energy and creates such a fantastic environment to be scanned in. Amanda was communicative and informative throughout the scan, explaining to us what she was reviewing and showing us lots of details of our little one. Amanda captured some beautiful scan photos of my little one, and created such lovely memories in video clips.

Towards the end of our pregnancy we got to meet Ashley for our scans, again so friendly, informative and lovely person to be around! We headed in for one final scan at 37 weeks…and unfortunately there were some concerns…Ashleigh handled this so professionally, she delivered the news with care, empathy, and with decisive action; contacting and referring us to our hospital. As a result of Ashleigh’s findings and quick-actions on referral, our baby boy was safely delivered early via C-section 48 hours later!

The customer service and services of Expectancy Scanning are excellent, the experience was beyond our expectations and we would absolutely recommend Amanda & the team as the gold standard in scanning services.
