What is a membrane sweep?

Membrane sweeps are offered before other methods of induction where a qualified midwife will carry out the procedure during an internal examination.

Pressure is applied using a finger to the opening of the cervix to separate the membranes of the amniotic sac surrounding your baby from your cervix. This separation releases hormones (prostaglandins) which may kick start your labour within 48 hours.

You have a higher chance of getting into labour if your cervix is already softening and preparing for labour.

What our mothers say...

Been here for a 6 week early pregnancy scan, a reassurance scan and today for a gender reveal! All 3 times we have been looked after and loved every minute of being here! They are lovely ladies who know what there doing! Even better to see our little baby lots of times! Will definitely be coming back for our 4d scan in few weeks!

What our mothers say...

I came here for a gender scan at 16 weeks and 4 days pregnant. The lady who scanned me was very good, she checked baby all over and was very supportive to us after only recently losing our little precious angel last year. We were very happy with the scan photos too. A* we’d highly recommend this clinic.
