Rainbow Clinic

The Rainbow Clinic is a specialist service for women and their families in a subsequent pregnancy following a stillbirth or perinatal death. We care for families from the time of the postnatal appointment to discuss investigations onwards and into a subsequent pregnancy.

The clinic provides additional scans to identify placental dysfunction and detect complications early in a subsequent pregnancy.

We make use of the scanning methods pioneered in Manchester Placenta Clinic to look at the placenta in more detail.

In addition we provide continuity of care and additional psychological support.

We offer:

  • An ultrasound scan at 23 weeks and then at intervals throughout pregnancy.
  • Consultant led care with midwifery support.
  • Discussion regarding timing/mode of delivery.


The clinics are held every Thursday.
