Learn more about ultrasounds and health
Ultrasound scans, similar to those done
during standard obstetrical care at a
doctor's office, will be conducted once
between 10-19 weeks gestation. The
ultrasound scans will be used to estimate
gestational age of the fetus and to assess
whether any abnormalities in development
can be detected. Each ultrasound takes
approximately 30-45 minutes to complete.
If a recent ultrasound exam has been
completed by your doctor and is
accessible, we may not repeat the
ultrasound. In addition to ultrasounds,
monthly health screenings will be
conducted. Your pulse and blood pressure
will be taken and recorded, your weight
will be measured, and you will be asked to
complete a urine screening for general
health and drugs.
