What Our Patients Say

Gráinne Macken

This is my second visit to Merrion Fetal, I was very pleased on both occasions. Lovely quiet waiting room, appointment was on time. The 20-week scan is very detailed we enjoyed watching our baby on the large TV screen. We got some beautiful photos. The nurse was very pleasant and talked us through all the measurements and anatomy. I would highly recommend this scanning clinic.”

Áine Gibney

I had the best experience at the Merrion Fetal Health clinic for my 20-week big scan. The staff were so friendly and so nice and the lovely lady who did my ultrasound scan was amazing. She was so thoroughgoing to absolutely everything and gave me such reassurance on how my baby was growing and developing. I would recommend any Mother to be to attend here if you are looking for a comfortable, reassuring and super pleasant experience.”

Linda O'Sullivan

Highly recommend! We had an early scan due to a little scare at the start of pregnancy and then another at 12 weeks to make sure all was good again. Helen who was scanning on both days was fantastic. We felt totally relaxed and un-rushed while she took her time finding the best angle of baby to get us the clearest pictures as keepsakes all while making sure everything was perfect with baby. She reassured us throughout and I can honestly say it was the best money we ever spent getting both scans done.

Please let Helen know we are 18 weeks now and flying along Highly recommend!

I've been here for the harmony test and had truly great experience, the consultant gave detailed information during the... visit, had engaging discussion about the baby and while my partner was not allowed in the room due to COVID-19 restrictions, we've got some nice pictures from the scan and detailed report with fetal measurements on it. Unfortunately, my experience was not so good with the 20 week anatomy scan that I did in here. Even though my husband was allowed in, they reduced the time of the visit to 15min, so the sonographer was rushed to tick off all the boxes and did not discuss anything with us, nor we received any report and pictures were all blurred and nothing much to see from them. On top of that, the big screen was not in function this time, so I had to twist my neck to be able to follow what's shown on the screen. After few days of worrying what the result of the scan would be, to not getting any information out of it, so I will need to repeat the scan somewhere else to get the peace of mind.read more

I visited Merrion Fetal Health for my 20-week fetal anomaly scan and had a really pleasant experience. The receptionist... was helpful in walking me through payment and even called me later to further explain some charges. The technician who performed our ultrasound and Harmony test was really approachable, kind, and informative and didn't mind my many questions. Thank you for making an otherwise anxious time such a wonderful experience for this first-time expecting mum!read more
