Cervical Length Scan
Cervical length scan from 17 to 30 weeks
A cervical length scan is used to assess for dilation of the cervix in women who have had a previous late pregnancy loss or if they have had treatment or surgery to their cervix in the past. The scan is performed transvaginally from 17 weeks gestation.
What will the cervical length scan show?
A cervical length scan will show if there is any sign of dilation or shortening of the cervix. We will advise you at the time of the scan if this is the case and refer you to the hospital if necessary.

What Cherish-UK Clients Say About Us
"Diana was fantastic when we went for an early scan. She was very informative and I felt that we got much more information that I've ever had with an NHS scan. I was made to feel at ease and reassured throughout. Couldn't recommend enough. We will definitely go back!"
Claire, Sutton Coldfield
"I contacted cherish to enquire about a early pregnancy scan, the lady on the phone was so kind and friendly and we were able to be seen at a time and day that suited us best. Diana , our sonographer was very kind and thoroughly explained everything on the screen to us. It was incredibly reassuring and we had some lovely pictures which she kindly printed off and promptly emailed to us along with the scan report. We are so pleased with the service we received and will certainly be returning for a future scan."
"Diana and Jacqui are both amazing. I had had my 1st ever baby's scann & heart beat there. So they would always be special to me now :-) They are very welcoming and ever so reassuring they make you feel right at home. The Customer service is definitely top notch! I will be telling all my friends about Cherish and I will be back :-) Thank you Diana you are the bestest! xxx ;-)"
"Im so pleased with the wonderful, professional service given today at Cherish. Following previous bad news last year this has made my day! Thank you for sharing your in depth knowledge and for explaining things so well and showing such understanding. I will be recommending you to everybody."
"After going through IVF I had been very worried about something going wrong and so we decided to book a private scan at Cherish at 10 weeks for reassurance. When we arrived half an hour early Diana saw us within 5 minutes. We were then scanned and completely amazed by what we saw. Diana took lots of photos and also advised an internal scan to get the best photos and they certainly were incredible. To see our baby move around and be told by Diana that everything was as it should be was brilliant and she looked after us so well. We purchased a recording of our baby's heartbeat to put into a little bear which was just the cutest thing ever. Thank you so much Diana and Cherish for a truly wonderful experience, we will certainly be returning and recommending you to family and friends. Hannah & Darren xxx"

However, with the friendly atmosphere and the professional guidance and help from Jacqui, we felt totally relieved. Highly recommend to Cherish UK!"
