When women come to our clinic for a pregnancy test, our nurses will often recommend that they consider having a free ultrasound here as well.
But why do ultrasounds matter?
Ultrasounds are important because they give our nurses and clients a better understanding of the situation. It is possible to have a positive pregnancy test, and not have a viable pregnancy. Pregnancy tests can only indicate the presence of the HCG hormone in the urine, but they cannot give any more information than that. An ultrasound can help confirm the pregnancy by determining whether or not it is viable (i.e., in the uterus with a heartbeat present).
Knowing whether or not the pregnancy is viable is crucial information to have when making a decision about your pregnancy.
Our clinic offers free and confidential limited obstetrical ultrasounds. A limited obstetrical ultrasound can provide information to help determine if the pregnancy is in the uterus, if there is a heartbeat, and what the estimated gestational age is.
*It's important to know that our ultrasounds cannot and should not replace regular prenatal care with your OB/GYN doctor.
Interested in an ultrasound? Call our clinic to schedule a consultation with one of our nurses! Our offices are open 8am-4pm Monday - Thursday, and we can be reached at 307-745-3444.
