Hello,
I can understand your concern.
Tiffa scan is usually done at 18 to 23 weeks of pregnancy to rule out any congenital abnormalities in the fetus. At 6 months i would suggest tiffa scan is not necessary. Get a normal ultrasound done and if the results show any abnormality you can go for tiffa scan. Thanku
