Free Limited Obstetric Ultrasounds
Ultrasounds. Completely free.
Lifeline Women’s Resource Center can provide a limited obstetric ultrasound in order to determine the viability and dating of the pregnancy. All ultrasounds are performed by trained medical personnel at the pregnancy center.
- Detect fetal heartbeat
- Determine the approximate due date
- Determine the location of pregnancy (intrauterine v. ectopic)
- Advise immediate medical attention at an emergency room, if indicated
Please note that if you are experiencing health issues such as bleeding, spotting, or cramping, you should seek immediate medical attention. These could be symptoms of a spontaneous abortion, or miscarriage, and you may require further medical treatment.
An ultrasound will give you the most accurate information as to how your pregnancy is progressing. No matter what decision you feel you should make regarding your pregnancy, having an ultrasound is important for your health and wellbeing.
An ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to produce an image from inside the body. It is a noninvasive diagnostic imaging test. During pregnancy, an ultrasound provides imaging of the uterus as well as the developing baby.
We do not disclose the gender of the baby at Lifeline Women’s Resource Center. We provide limited-obstetric ultrasounds and sharing the gender of the baby does not fall under limited-obstetric practice.
It is possible to have an ultrasound at your initial appointment, but you may need to come back for a second appointment. When you arrive, we will perform a pregnancy test and then determine when you should have your ultrasound. If your pregnancy is less than six weeks we may schedule you to come back for another appointment to receive an ultrasound scan.
An ultrasound will allow you to know that your pregnancy is viable as well as how far along you are in your pregnancy. 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage and you may not know that you have miscarried or are miscarrying until you come in for an ultrasound. Our medical staff can give you accurate information regarding your pregnancy, your options, and what potential follow up needs to take place.
