A limited ultrasound can help determine what options are available to you by determining how far along you are and the viability of your pregnancy. Call for more information or to talk with someone who can help.
Free pregnancy testing and ultrasounds help determine viability and dates.
In addition, an early ultrasound can,
- help determine the baby’s due date
- verify and allow you to see the baby’s heartbeat
- verify that your pregnancy is where it should be (intrauterine vs. ectopic)
Ultrasound exams use high frequency sound waves to look inside a woman’s body. Because the sound is such at a high frequency, it cannot be heard with the human ear. These sound waves are directed at the internal body from a small vibrating crystal in a hand-held scanner called a “transducer.” The scanner reflects the sound (echoes) to create an image.
Both an abdominal (external) and a vaginal (internal) scan will be performed.
You will receive preparation instructions for your ultrasound at the time of your pregnancy test appointment.
Ultrasounds are typically scheduled two weeks after your positive test appointment at the clinic.
Q: Does ultrasound cause any damage?
There have been countless investigations by numerous research groups to identify any harm ultrasound may cause, yet there has never been any evidence to support that it causes harm to either the baby or to the mother.
Q: How many ultrasounds can I receive?
At Heartbeats, we provide ultrasound services to expectant mothers in their 1st trimester. Contact us today to learn more about our limitations.
Q: Will Heartbeats offer an ultrasound later in my pregnancy?
There are many reasons ultrasound is used later in pregnancy, usually to see if the pregnancy is continuing normally and to check the baby’s health and prognosis. Heartbeats typically doesn’t offer an ultrasound after 12 weeks.
5. Can I get an ultrasound at either Heartbeats location?
Yes! However, you may only schedule an ultrasound consult if you have first had a pregnancy test in our office.
