Is getting an ultrasound or sonogram really necessary?

After discovering that they are pregnant, many women are uncertain of the next step to take in their pregnancy.  Often having an ultrasound (sonogram) is the last thing on a woman's mind; however, a viability ultrasound can provide crucial information before deciding on a pregnancy plan. 

The Pregnancy Clinic provides limited free viability ultrasounds which may be able to determine if the pregnancy is viable (living).  Research shows that up to 30% of early pregnancies may end in miscarriage.1 If the pregnancy is not viable, the woman may miscarry and an abortion procedure may be unnecessary. Additionally, the pregnancy may be ectopic which requires immediate medical attention. 

Call today to schedule a free appointment for an ultrasound.
