WHAT EXACTLY IS AN ULTRASOUND?
An ultrasound scan uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the inside of the body. It is suitable for use during pregnancy because sound waves are used to make an image instead of radiation.
Next Step offers free limited ultrasound (not for diagnostic purposes) once a pregnancy test is verified positive and you meet with a client advocate. If there is concern for high risk or outside the limitations of our license, the client will be provided with a referral.
WHY HAVE AN ULTRASOUND?
3 ways an ultrasound can help you make your choice:
1. | Just because you are pregnant does NOT mean you will stay pregnant.
Up to 25% of all pregnancies will naturally end in a miscarriage. First find out if your pregnancy is viable.
2. | An ultrasound will provide more accurate dating to help determine how far along the pregnancy is.
3. | Provide you with an estimated due date.
