There are two main types of ultrasound: gynecologic and prenatal. Gynecologic ultrasounds can help your OB-GYN diagnose problems within the uterus and ovaries, while prenatal ultrasounds provide valuable information on your baby’s health and development.
Ultrasound in Pregnancy
Ultrasound technology is safe for both mother and child and utilizes high-frequency sound waves to take pictures of the structures within the abdomen and pelvis. An ultrasound can be used for a variety of reasons during pregnancy, including checking the fetal heartbeat, monitoring fetal growth, determining sex, etc. In our practice, we are also happy to provide ultrasound pictures to expectant parents during medically indicated ultrasounds.
If you have questions or concerns about the use of ultrasound technology for your gynecological and prenatal care, please let us know. Because our practice is independently owned and operated, we’re able to develop quality relationships with our patients and devote the time and resources needed to fully answer all of your concerns. At A Woman’s Healing Center, your care, and the care of your baby are our number one goals!
