If you have had a positive pregnancy test, an ultrasound can be a next step in your pregnancy. An ultrasound is a simple and painless procedure that uses sound waves transmitted into your uterus to help determine the viability of your pregnancy. Another reason to have an ultrasound is to confirm the gestational stage of pregnancy and detect the fetal heart beat.
This center does not provide ultrasounds for the purpose of determining gender or diagnosing any medical conditions or abnormalities.
At the Alpha Center, the need for an ultrasound is determined by a client advocate during the pregnancy test appointment and consultation and cannot be given under all circumstances.
