What is an ultrasound?
An ultrasound or sonogram is a simple, painless diagnostic test. The test uses sound waves to create an image of what is happening in your uterus to help determine how far along you are in your pregnancy. The ultrasound is available as early as 6 weeks and is performed by a professionally trained sonographer.
Why would I need an ultrasound?
Ultrasound can help us determine if you have a viable pregnancy, if your pregnancy is in the uterus, and how far along you are. Our ultrasounds are available on an as-needed basis. Your counselor and one of our nurses will talk with you and help you determine if ultrasound would be best for you and when would be the best time to have one done. If you have already had an ultrasound or have experienced any bleeding or cramping ultrasounds may not be available to you. Our limited ultrasounds do not determine the sex of the baby.
What does an ultrasound cost?
Our Ultrasounds are free of charge and confidential.
