What Does An Ultrasound Do?

You’ve probably heard of an ultrasound before. People get them every day for a lot of different reasons. But, for our purposes, an ultrasound is an image of what’s going on inside your uterus. The uterus is the place that holds a pregnancy. An ultrasound is an excellent way to determine so much about your pregnancy. We offer limited obstetrical ultrasounds. They can confirm the pregnancy, detect if there is a fetal heartbeat, determine the fetal age and approximate due date. All of this information is very important. Good information leads to good decisions. Now that you have all of this knowledge, you can now begin thinking of your next steps.

What to expect during your ultrasound:

A pregnancy appointment will range between 45 and 90 minutes. A registered nurse who has undergone specialized training in sonography will perform your ultrasound. During the ultrasound, the nurse will walk you through the process and explain the findings. After the ultrasound is complete, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns you may have with your nurse and continue to plan the next steps. Your support person is welcome to come with you to your appointment whether it be a significant other, friend, or family member.
