Ultrasounds in Springfield, IL

A positive pregnancy test result can be scary, but before you panic, it’s important to get an ultrasound to confirm that you have a viable pregnancy. Our center performs free ultrasounds, which identifies a variety of factors regarding your pregnancy.

Why Do I Need An Ultrasound?

An ultrasound is a vital step for confirming a pregnancy. While a pregnancy test is a good indicator of a pregnancy, an ultrasound can show 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.  An ultrasound will confirm the location of the pregnancy in your body.

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

What Do Ultrasounds Do?

Ultrasounds use high-frequency sound waves to identify a growing fetus. An ultrasound can show us how far along you are, detect a fetal heartbeat, and determine if the pregnancy is in the uterus.
