Anyone know of anywhere in Galway or Athlone i can get a private scan at 8 weeks? My hospital scan wont be until 12 weeks and had a mc in June so very nervous so would like an early scan if possible.

Theres nowhere in Athlone - I went to the Galway Clinic cost €120, there's also a place in Terryland in Galway that do them not sure about the price.

The galway clinic only do the scans from 8-12 weeks and they are not doing any scans for the month of Sept due to staffing issues.

I think 8 weeks is the earliest anywhere will do them as the heart usually doesnt start beating till then, you could try the one in terryland then or else you might have to go to dublin.

The Brooklawn Practice in Rahoon/Knocknacarra (near dunnes/B&Q) told me yesterday they'd do one up to the time you enter the public system
