im having a 10 week scan next week. theres nothing on the letter about cost, so i was just wondering what others experiences were of getting a printout. is it free or did you have to pay?

At out hospital its 2.50 and has been same price since I was pg with dc1 in 2006

Our letter said £10 for 3 pictures, but when we handed over £10 they gave us 5!

£6 a picture with Birmingham Women's!!
At 20 week we asked for 2, so we could each take one to work. Looked at the pics after we paid and they were both crap. Same image, one slightly zoomed in. Really disappointed with them.

£4 per pic, we paid £12 and got 4 pics for 12 week scan and 20 week scan.

£4 per pic

Wewere told £5 for one which we duly paid at 12 week scan. At 20 week scan we were told we could have it for free hmm. Nothing in letter so think our hospital just makes it up!?

We paid £3 per pic x

It's a donation at my one, most people put a quid in

£10 for one picture at University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire!!

Ridiculous!!

There were signs all over the u/s dept saying pics are £2 but we didn't pay for any scan pics for either of my girls.

MyNameIsSuz Wed 16-Oct-13 18:03:52

£10 for 3, but they also let us snap the screen on our mobiles so we had a (sort of sketchy) digital one too.

£3 a pic or 2 for £5 or 4 for £10 west london

£3 per picture - you buy tokens from a machine on the wall and give them to the sonographer. We wanted 3 pics but she told me just to buy 2 tokens wink

Get to free in leeds, all subsequent pics are £5 i think.

dimdommilpot Wed 16-Oct-13 18:52:01

*2 free

LadyGoodman Wed 16-Oct-13 18:52:50

I think it was £5 for 3 pics

hettienne Wed 16-Oct-13 18:54:20

I think 12 weeks we got some free ones, 20 weeks we paid £5 and got about 5.

missmargot Wed 16-Oct-13 18:58:36

Another from UHCW here, £10 per photo which I was not thrilled about. Theirs seem to be the most expensive so far, I'm interested to know how they will justify so will ask the question when I'm back there next.

My 12 week one was free because I had to wait AGES with a full bladder. It should have been a fiver for three pictures.

My 20 week one was a donation. We donated £10 for five pictures.

My 38 week one, emergency check which way up is the baby one, was also free. We got three pictures from that.

greentshirt Wed 16-Oct-13 19:28:16

Ours was a fiver for one picture but they gave me about 6 I think, you pay before they give you the pictures so we didnt know how many we would get. It said how much it would be on the letter and how much change to have etc.

I had another today and when she gave my notes back she included 3 pics and didnt mention paying for them

pegster Wed 16-Oct-13 19:53:01

£10 but no specified number of pics, think we got 6 or 7

elliejjtiny Wed 16-Oct-13 20:08:58

We get charged £6.50 per photo if everything is fine but it's free if the image was blurry or if they find a problem with the baby.

Stom91 Wed 16-Oct-13 20:19:09

Ours is a donation pot I put £2 in got 3 pics that was at 20 weeks scan.. The pics weren't very good..

At 12 week scan they were free as we waited so long.. The pictures where alot better!
