Visit 4: The Ultrasound

Contact Us

Every prenatal visit is exciting for mothers, but perhaps the most exciting is the obstetric ultrasound. To make visible what is imagined, to lend form to what is almost emotion, to make real what sometimes has to be taken on faith, to be able to "see" the growing human form of "my baby" -- that is what makes the prenatal ultrasound so special.

However, there is a medical purpose behind the use of the ultrasound -- prenatal screening, prenatal diagnosis and often to guide obstetric management.
