PREGNANCY OBSTETRICAL ULTRASOUND

The purpose of an obstetrical ultrasound is to:

  • Confirm pregnancy
  • Detect cardiac activity
  • Determine fetal age
  • Determine due date
  • Determine if it’s a multiple birth pregnancy (twins, triplets, etc.)
  • Determine the location of the pregnancy (intrauterine/ectopic)

Limitations

CAPS provides a free “limited obstetrical ultrasound”. The ultrasound examination is not intended to determine the sex of your baby. Nor will CAPS diagnose any potential abnormalities and/or problems, which is the role of an OB/GYN professional. We cannot perform an ultrasound if you are already under the care of an OB/GYN for this pregnancy.

WHAT IS AN ULTRASOUND?

Ultrasound utilizes high frequency sound waves to obtain images. There are no confirmed harmful effects in the thirty plus years of clinical use. CAPS Medical Personnel will go over the free ultrasound procedure and answer any questions you have.
