The Portland Hospital for Women and Children have enhanced patient choice for expectant parents by offering iBabyScan with all their ultrasound scans.
iBabyScan allows you to securely watch video and see images of your pregnancy scan online. You can re-watch at home or share these with your friends and family wherever they are in the world.
It’s a great way to announce your pregnancy. You can share video or photos from your scan on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and by email. iBabyScan works on mobile phones, iPads, as well as on Laptops and Desktops.
The Portland Hospital strive to implement innovative technology to improve services. Mr Pranav Pandya (Consultant Fetal Medicine & Obstetrics), commented, "iBabyScan is a valuable addition to our portfolio of maternity services. It offers parents the unique opportunity to improve family bonding by allowing them to securely watch, carry and keep their own video of their baby at home and to share these images with their friends and family around the world. "
They can access it on their home computer or from most mobile devices such as iPad or smartphone. Expectant parents can take still images from their video and, with ease in a matter of a couple of clicks, share these or the video with family and friends by email, Twitter or Facebook.
Dean Meredith, Sonography & Fetal Medicine Lead at the Portland commented, "Protecting our patients’ confidentiality is one of our top priorities. Whilst many of our parents-to-be are keen to share their scans with family and friends we also know that they are equally keen that such personal information should be secure and only viewed by authorised viewers".
iBabyScan has all the latest security measures implemented. Secure internet connections are used and all data is encrypted and anonymised so that you can be sure your data is secure and will never be compromised.
Many parents-to-be have already enjoyed the experience of iBabyScan:
"It was wonderful to watch and we were able to show it to our 18 month old son as part of explaining about the baby in mummy's tummy."
"My parents live in Canada so it was wonderful to be able to involve them in the pregnancy and to be able to share it with them as well as other family and friends."
"My fiancé could not make the 20 week scan, due to being away with the armed forces. He is due home just days before the due date, so the opportunity to view the scan is a real privilege to us. What a fantastic idea!"
"I love having it & watch it every few days, really helps me connect with her!"
