Free Ultrasound Procedures
LifeTalk Resource Center offers free and confidential limited ultrasounds to women who have had a positive pregnancy test result in our center.
When Should I Get an Ultrasound?
We recommend getting an ultrasound one to four weeks after you’ve taken a pregnancy test with positive results. A pregnancy test alone is not enough to verify your pregnancy. That is why it is important to get an ultrasound, so you can know for certain that you have a viable pregnancy.
What is an Ultrasound?
Ultrasounds are painless examinations that use a device to bounce sound waves off of a developing fetus and create an image on a monitor. Instructions concerning your ultrasound will be issued to you by a LifeTalk nurse.
Ultrasounds are performed to:
- Confirm pregnancy
- Detect fetal heartbeat
- Determine fetal age
- Determine due date
- Determine the location of the pregnancy (intrauterine/ectopic)
What Comes Next
After confirming that you have a viable pregnancy, your next step should be to think through your pregnancy options. Our staff can talk with you about abortion, adoption, and parenting. This will give you an understanding of what each option will look like for your situation. No matter what option you are considering, we will be here to help you and answer all of your questions in a safe and confidential environment. Reach out to us today to schedule an appointment.
