Question: Why and when fetal echocardiography is done?
Answer: A fetal echo is a specialist, detailed scan of your baby’s heart. This type of scan looks for heart defects. During your routine anomaly scan between 18 weeks and 21 weeks of pregnancy, your sonographer should take a good look at your baby's heart.  If she spots something she thinks needs a closer look, she will refer you for a fetal echo scan. Your baby's heart is tiny at this stage, so she'll err on the side of caution if she thinks more detail is needed.
