This used to be the case in Bristol. When I had DS (nearly 3) I had no 12 wk scan, just the 20 week one, but when I had DD last year they had introduced the 12 week one. Think it is NICE guidelines, but don't think this means they have to give you one.
If you choose to have the nuchal fold scan you can have it at the RUH where you'll get to see the baby and have photos etc but won't find out the results for another 24 hrs. If you have it with BUPA in Bristol they'll give you all the results straight away. It costs about the same for both.
Iateallthecreameggs - I had my DD there almost a year ago and had a fantastic birth. The only thing was that post birth the ward was very busy and so was noisy resulting in me only spending 1 night in and begging to go home early 24hours after DD was born. The only bit of advice I had that I would gladly pass on is - when you arrive ask if the community delivery room is free it is the nicest room and very un-hospital like. If you would like to know anything else just let me know.
oops do you mean Bath? thats why id love to have bubba in Paulton as its so quiet and you get 1-1 care, there is hardly ever more than 2/3 other woman on the ward and its so local, 5 min drive for me, also good birthing pool facilities. Will see but as for now i have opted for Paulton. told them on my booking in appointment!
Paulton is great but you need to go prepared to be moved it anything does not go to plan. I had planned for the local MW led unit but ended up in for monitoring for a week prior to DD arriving. A friend was moved and delivered at RUH but went back to the amazing peace and quiet of Paulton. Good luck.
