im 17+5 weeks today and last night had a very small amount of bleeding which I got checked out at my local hospital. They checked me over and babys heart beat was strong so was told to go home and rest, bleeding had stopped before I got to hospital
today I am a nervous wreck and worried about everything again after finally relaxing. H and I were talking about perhaps having a reassurance scan with baby bond this weekend to ease our minds as our nhs one is 3 weeks away.
does anyone have any experiences with them or thoughts on it?

How scary, but I'm really glad everything was ok at the hospital. I totally understand where youre coming from with the worry. I've not had a reassurance scan, but I've had a gender scan with both pregnancies through baby bond, and they've been great both times.

This probably may not help but I honestly think that seeing hearing baby is great but it will only give you reasurance for a small time, I heard my babies heartbeat for the last time the night before he came early. I am sorry to say but things can go wrong even after seeing hearing baby.
I am not sure it would give you long term reassurance.
But couldwork for a short peroid

I had an early scan with them at around 9 weeks as we needed some extra reassurance. They were really nice and they online booking system was straightforward.
I went on to have a bleed at 13 weeks so I was a nervous wreck after that anyway. However we have since learned that the bleeding isn't related to the pregnancy.
If it's going to put your mind at ease then it's a small price to pay IMO x

I had an early scan with Babybond and was really pleased with the service I received. I managed to get an appointment within a couple of days as I wasn't fussed about location (everywhere is miles away from me!) and they were really lovely and professional.
I also had an extra scan at about 15 weeks due to complete paranoia (my mum works in X-Ray so managed to sneak me in one evening). It was a massive reassurance to me, even though I do appreciate what Chocolate Cupcake says above.

If you an afford it and think it will help you then I would book one.
I've had a few scans with them at different stages of pregnancy and they've always been very good.
I know what CC is saying, that it will only give you reassurance for that moment but it might be enough to get you through to your 20 weeks scan. Sometimes small goals to aim for are the only way to get through the 40 weeks IMO.

I've had Babybond scans too and IMO they can't be faulted. I think they're a godsend and if it helps you sleep more easily until your 20 week scan then that can only be a good thing.

I had a babybond 3d scan at 28 weeks and they were great. No experience of their reassurance scans but as a company I thought they were really good.
I had several scans throughout my pregnancy due to bleeding, placental location etc and I found them good little milestones. If you can afford it, I would book it.

I'll go against the grain as I had a 3d scan with babybond and really didn't rate their attitude or customer service. I like to think they'd be better at a reassurance scan though. Hope everything is ok lovely x
