Limited Ultrasound

Your free ultrasound will be performed by a medical professional. The ultrasound will always be free and confidential.

Our limited non-diagnostic ultrasound can tell you approximately how many weeks you are into your pregnancy.

Our free ultrasound may aid you in making this important decision.  A positive pregnancy test alone will not tell you if your pregnancy is able to continue.

Finding out if your pregnancy is a viable one (able to continue) before choosing abortion is very important.

  • Is the pregnancy located where it should be (in the uterus and not in the fallopian tube-ectopic pregnancy[i])?
  • Approximately how far along are you?
  • Is your pregnancy progressing as it should in a healthy early pregnancy, since the miscarriage rate in early pregnancy is about 1 in 5? [ii]

 

Did you know that on or around 21 days after conception, your baby’s heart begins to beat?[iii] During the limited non-diagnostic ultrasound appointment, we answer the questions above as well as measure the heart rate.
