Question: What is the earliest date you can have a scan?

Most women can instead have their first scan at 11 to 13 weeks — this is usually called the 12-week scan. This scan can work out the due date and gestational age of the baby, if youre having more than one baby and also screen for conditions like Down syndrome.

How early on can you have a scan?

An Early Pregnancy Scan (sometimes also called a Viability Scan or Dating Scan) provides reassurance in this very early stage of your pregnancy. A pregnancy can be seen on scan from as early as 6 weeks from the first day of your last period (LMP). We should be able to see a heartbeat from 6 weeks.
