Ultrasound

An Ultrasound will give you the information you need when facing an unplanned pregnancy.

Our ultrasounds are performed by a licensed medical professional. ultrasound.jpg

An ultrasound will confirm:

1. the baby's heartbeat (a live pregnancy)

2. the location of the baby (inside of the uterus)

3. the estimated gestational age of the baby (how many weeks into the pregnancy you are).

If you would like to schedule an ultrasound, contact us today! 

* We have one ultrasound machine at our Charleston office. All Choices offices are able to refer clients to Charleston for an ultrasound, after an initial office visit. 

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions:

How long does an ultrasound appointment last? 
Ultrasound appointments usually last an hour, including all the paperwork. 

What type of ultrasound will I receive?
You choose! Our nurses can perform either an abdominal or vaginal ultrasound. We want you to be comfortable. Our nurse will discuss these options with you during your appointment. 

Are ultrasounds painful? 
No. Relax and know that it is not painful. Ultrasounds have been used to image pregnancies for more than 30 years.  

Do I need insurance to have an ultrasound? 
No. At Choices our services are at no cost to you. We are funded by generous people in the community who care about women. 

How far along do I have to be to get an ultrasound? 
Your ultrasound can be performed between 6-14 weeks. If you are more than 14 weeks, then the licensed medical professional will check only for a heartbeat and then end the examination. 

Can you tell me if the baby is a boy or girl? 
No. The baby will be too small to tell the gender. 

Can you tell me if the baby has birth defects? 
No. Our ultrasound exams are limited and are only used to check the three items listed above, heartbeat, location, and gestational age.
