No-Cost Limited OB Ultrasounds

If you’ve recently had a positive pregnancy test result, the next step will be to have an ultrasound. These are offered completely free of charge at New Hope Center. No matter what options you’re considering for your unexpected pregnancy, an ultrasound will give you important information about your body and your health, so that you are prepared for your next steps.

What is an Ultrasound?

Ultrasound is a form of medical imaging that uses soundwaves to return an image of what’s happening inside the body, and in this case, inside the uterus. Ultrasounds are completely safe for both you and your pregnancy.

Why do I need one?

An ultrasound will provide you the information you’re going to need to make a decision about your unexpected pregnancy:

  1. An ultrasound will confirm your pregnancy. As many as one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage, so it’s important to make sure you’re really pregnant.
  2. An ultrasound will determine how many months along you are. This is important to know if you’re considering abortion because the procedures that are available to you will depend on the gestational age of your pregnancy.
  3. An ultrasound will show where the pregnancy is located – if it is somewhere other than the uterus, it is called an ectopic pregnancy.

What is an ectopic pregnancy?

An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the egg attaches itself somewhere other than the uterus, and usually in one of the fallopian tubes. This condition is very serious and requires immediate medical attention.

New Hope Center offers no-cost ultrasounds to women who are or might be pregnant, so they have the information they need to make the best possible decision for them. To schedule an appointment at our center, please contact us today.

New Hope Center cannot perform ultrasounds for those who are already under a doctor’s care.
