Ultrasounds are a great opportunity to see your developing baby—including some optional services that may be your baby’s first photo session—but they’re also important tools in medically monitoring your pregnancy. We are very lucky to have a team of highly skilled ultrasonographers at Women First, with five state-of-the-art ultrasound units conveniently located within our office.
Women First routinely performs all trimester obstetrical ultrasounds, as well as biophysical profile and umbilical artery doppler testing. 3D/4D ultrasounds are performed for high resolution images.
In the first trimester, ultrasound is done to confirm your due date and can also help evaluate threatened miscarriage, chromosomal abnormalities, or tubal pregnancy. During the second trimester, your Care Team will perform an abdominal ultrasound; a full anatomical survey of the baby is possible around 20 weeks. In the third trimester, we use ultrasound to analyze fetal growth, measure fluid and perform assessments of your baby’s well-being. Come to the ultrasound unit with a full bladder for better visualization.
