An Ultrasound will give you the information you need
when facing an unplanned pregnancy.
Our ultrasounds are performed by a licensed medical professional.
Studies have shown that up to 1 in 4 pregnancies are actually
non-viable pregnancies that typically end in a natural miscarriage.
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 offer medical services only at our Charleston office. All Choices offices are able to refer clients to Charleston for an ultrasound, after an initial office visit.
