Limited Obstetric Ultrasound Scan
Heritage Pregnancy and Family Health Center, Inc. is not a licensed medical facility but can provide a resource list of providers who offer free limited obstetric ultrasound services to confirm the pregnancy is located within the uterus, heartbeat, and gestational age (or how many weeks pregnant you are).
Performing ultrasound tests during pregnancy is a very safe and painless procedure. Obstetric ultrasound uses sound waves to produce pictures of a baby (embryo or fetus) within a pregnant woman, as well as the mother's uterus and ovaries. Unlike x-ray imaging, there is no ionizing radiation exposure associated with ultrasound and has no known harmful effects.
