    That place charges £100, the earliest they do it is 7 weeks though, most places the earliest they will scan is 6 weeks.

    Mine is £70, but thats down in Sunny Essex, just have a look on google, but from my experience of living in Surrey everything costs more.

    Not many places will do the scans before 7 weeks hun, if you can wait that long then you might as well wait for 10 weeks, but if you're desperate then they cost about £100

    Good Luck xx

    I think in Surrey depending on what hospital your at the 1st scan is between 10 - 14 weeks, big gap I know. St Heliers were very good though. Last time I waited, this time I couldnt so I know how you feel.

    It'll be at some point between those 2 dates that they offer you a scan. I used to live in Wallington.

    I didnt get to give birth there, I moved down here 2 weeks before I was due. Wasnt any talk of a c-section though. Mind you I heard the same thing about Epsom. I think out of all my friends that have given birth there they've all had c-sections.

    I feel so blessed to live in Canada, we don't have to pay for anything like that, health insurance covers prenatal, whether you are working or not, can't imagine having to pay for everything.
