Ultrasound imaging is vital in the evaluation of a number of obstetrical and gynecological conditions. We are very lucky to have a team of six highly skilled ultrasonographers at Women First, staffing four ultrasound units conveniently located within our office. We operate state of the art equipment and routinely perform all trimester obstetrical ultrasounds, as well as biophysical profile and umbilical artery Doppler testing. 3D/4D ultrasounds are performed for high resolution images. First trimester ultrasounds can screen for chromosomal abnormalities, tubal pregnancy and potential for miscarriage and are done to confirm your due date. In the second trimester, abdominal ultrasound is performed and a full anatomical survey can be performed at 20 weeks. In the third trimester, we use ultrasound to analyze fetal growth, measure fluid and perform assessments of your baby’s well-being. You should come to the ultrasound unit with a full bladder for better visualization.
Women First offers elective gender scans at 16 weeks. (This scan is performed only to evaluate the gender; the anatomical scan can not be done until 20 weeks.) The gender ultrasound session includes four images of your baby and gender determination for only $65.00. Family, friends and children are welcome. Approximately 15 minutes will be spent performing the scan. Insurance does not cover these scans, so please be prepared to pay for your ultrasound at the time of your visit.
3D/4D Fetal Photography Session
Seeing your baby through the technology of ultrasound can be a joyful experience. At Women First, we believe that ultrasound can promote early bonding and be a powerful force to carry you through the last weeks of your pregnancy. During this session, our sonographers will spend time viewing your baby’s features, measure your baby’s growth and weight, and record it on a DVD for you. This is best done between 28 and 32 weeks. You may bring family members with you as well. Fetal photography sessions are $175 and are payable when you present for the ultrasound.
