An ultrasound is used as a more accurate confirmation of pregnancy and to determine how far along the pregnancy is, and if it is viable. “About 10 to 20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. But the actual number is likely higher because many miscarriages occur so early in pregnancy that a woman doesn’t realize she’s pregnant.”
If you are considering abortion as an option, the type of procedure and costs are based on how far along you are in your pregnancy. Although we don’t perform or refer for abortions at Pregnancy Resource Center, we can help you understand the type of the procedure you may be contemplating.
Ultrasounds must be scheduled in advance, are free to our clients, and are performed by our trained and compassionate medical staff. Ultrasounds are performed during the first trimester only. You can request an appointment by chooosing the option for a “Pre-Ultrasound Screening” online or by phone. You will not receive an ultrasound at this appointment, but will talk with nurse or consultant who will verify your pregnancy with a pregnancy test and determine your eligibility for an ultrasound. Please call us with any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you!
