Ultrasounds During Pregnancy

Posted on September 8, 2016

At our practice, we routinely perform 2 sonograms during your pregnancy. The first is done at your first visit to confirm your due date and view the baby’s heartbeat. The second ultrasound if done at approximately 20 weeks gestation. This ultrasound will assess baby’s growth, basic anatomy, placenta, and assess your cervix using transvaginal ultrasound.

All patients have the option of having a 3D/4D ultrasound between 24 – 28 weeks. There is a charge for the 3D/4D ultrasound. It is not covered by insurance.

Additional ultrasounds may be necessary during your pregnancy for growth, fluid checks, etc.
