An open message for anyone who is thinking of booking a private pregnancy scan at Sneak-A-Peek Ultrasound

Would you like to...

• Have a scan with your partner so they can meet your baby and feel more involved in your pregnancy

• Investigate the cause of your bleeding, pain or other worrying symptoms (and hopefully put your mind at ease)

• Reveal your baby’s gender and celebrate their arrival

• Meet your baby in 4D so you can see what they look like (and whose nose they have!)

• Get crystal clear 3D images or 4D HDLive video clips of your baby so you can introduce them to your family and friends

• Have a magical experience to look back on fondly for years to come—even if you’ve had a difficult pregnancy

If so, I'd be delighted to help.

However, I do not recommend you book a scan unless you have taken the free pregnancy scan quiz below.

I want you to have the best experience possible, which means first deciding:

1) Whether a private pregnancy scan is the best option in your unique circumstances

2) Which scan is best suited to your needs

3) The optimal timing for your scan

The trouble is, it’s not always easy to answer these questions on your own.

Which is why I used to speak to everyone individually before they booked a scan. 

But as the clinic has grown and my time has become more limited, I no longer have the capacity to do so.

Therefore, I spent several months developing an online tool which serves the same purpose, and is now available to you for free.

To see purchasing options, simply take the free pregnancy scan quiz below.

My husband got to see our baby and we loved seeing her in 4D

Maria was very friendly and made us feel very comfortable. She was very patient and was determined to get a great picture, as our baby kept covering her face. We loved seeing her in 4D! My husband got to see our baby, as covid stopped him from coming to NHS scans. It was great reassurance that our baby is growing well, as we have no more scans at the hospital.

Maria gave us so much information that we didn’t receive with the NHS

I would highly recommend booking a scan with Sneak-A-Peek. Maria went through everything during the scan and gave us so much information that we didn’t receive with the NHS. We now know their weight, length etc. It was a lovely experience to see our baby before they arrive.

We were able to have the gender written down

We had an amazingly positive experience. The scan was really clear. We didn’t feel rushed and we were able to enjoy the special experience together. It was also great to come away with some printed photos but also have others by email. We were able to see our baby in 2D, 3D & 4D, hear the heartbeat and have the gender written down! We will definitely recommend sneak a peek to all friends and family.

Relaxing, comforting and friendly

We booked a scan for peace of mind, and I’m so pleased we did. It was so relaxing, comforting and friendly.

I got peace of mind and a way to share my pregnancy with loved ones

Maria was very thoughtful. From the seating, bladder, to the nice little folder I received at the end (+email). I got peace of mind and a way to share my pregnancy with loved ones. I would recommend Sneak-A-Peek Ultrasound. It was a nice experience for me and I’m sure others would find it the same.

It gave us an insight into her character

I’m absolutely over the moon that we decided to book a 4D scan. We feel like we have had a real look into our little girl and know what she’s going to look like when born in April. I loved that we were welcomed warmly, felt at ease, comfortable, and well informed the entire time. Loved that Maria was a perfectionist with enormous amounts of patience. We had beautiful images and the chance to meet our baby even before she’s born. It gave us an insight into her character. We really, thoroughly enjoyed the experience! I would recommend to anyone I know that’s expecting. Such a great service to have right on our doorstep.

It was a really relaxing and magical experience!

I wanted reassurance that my baby was doing well and that everything was good! It was a really relaxing and magical experience! The environment was lovely and it was a truly relaxing experience nothing like having a scan at the hospital! Thank you for allowing parents the chance to see their babies in a relaxed setting.

Suzanna Shepherd, Barnstaple

Maria was amazing—she is so friendly and welcoming

We are over the moon. Maria was amazing. She went above and beyond to get us some lovely scan photos. We would 100% recommend Maria. She is so friendly and welcoming and her clinic is very clean and professional. My baby was a little shy, but Maria still managed to get us some lovely photos. Due to COVID 19 my partner has been unable to come to any scans up until this one. It was an emotional and happy scan. Maria really is amazing 🙂

Our scan was very thorough and we got to see the baby for a long time

Our scan was very thorough and we got to see the baby for a long time in a very friendly atmosphere. We found out the gender and had extra reassurance that everything is well. Definitely recommend - local, friendly and in depth.

Seeing my baby in 3D was one of the best experiences of my life

I came out of my scan absolutely beaming. Seeing my baby in 3D was one of the best experiences of my life. I am so grateful for all the time and attention paid to my scan. Knowing my baby is growing well, seeing his beautiful face for the first time, and having many pictures and videos to show my partner who hasn’t been allowed to any of the scans due to the virus. I feel like he is now more of a part of my pregnancy because of the numerous pictures & videos we got. It was so personal, relaxing and amazing.

Ella Adams, Barnstaple

Finding out the gender and being able to share videos with our friends and family was amazing 🙂

Finding out the gender and being able to share videos with our friends and family was amazing 🙂 Maria was very informative, really took her time to explain the process, what we were seeing and answer any questions we had. It was great to be able to receive lots of photos and videos too. I would absolutely recommend Sneak-A-Peek Ultrasound. Being able to meet your baby, albeit via a screen, is an incredible experience—made even better by Maria, the environment, relaxed atmosphere and information received.

I had my first 4d scan with Maria at sneak a peek and I couldn't have come away happier! She's such a lovely lady, happy to answer any questions I had not just about the scan but also my pregnancy. So reassuring, showing me all my baby's organs, limbs and facial features. I came away with lots of pictures and videos to keep! The whole experience was brilliant! Couldn't recommend enough!
