Why Do I Need An Ultrasound?

Ultrasounds are vital to understanding the details of your pregnancy and if it’s healthy. Before making any pregnancy decision, get an ultrasound to be sure. While a pregnancy test is a good indicator of a pregnancy, an ultrasound shows you if there is actually a developing pregnancy in your uterus.  Pregnancies that develop outside of the uterus can be dangerous and are called ectopic pregnancies.

What Do Ultrasounds Do?

Ultrasounds use high-frequency sound waves to identify a growing fetus. An ultrasound confirms three important pregnancy details, including:

1. The viability of your pregnancy (if it has a heartbeat)
2. How far along you are
3. The location of your pregnancy

Ultrasounds are completely safe and are performed by our trained staff. The results of your ultrasound are kept confidential and we’ll discuss our findings with you immediately.
