What is a prenatal scan?
Typically, a prenatal scan indicates having a sonogram/ultrasound performed. This scan can determine the baby's heart rate, size and weight and is a better predictor of gestational age. After week 20, expectant parents often are able to ascertain the sex of their unborn child through ultrasound.
You can't have a prenatal birth. Natal means birth. For example words like prenatal ultrasound scan, and postnatal depression refer to before birth and after birth You can have a premature birth. This is when a baby is born earlier than 9 months The event was probably misreported as a prenatal birth by an ignorant journalist and missed by the editor.
