Free Limited Ultrasounds

Free Limited Ultrasounds

If you are uncertain about which choice to make regarding your pregnancy or are thinking about abortion, we recommend that you have a free limited ultrasound to answer some of these questions regarding your pregnancy: “How far along am I?” and “Does my pregnancy appear viable?”. Finding out these answers allows you to more thoroughly explore the risks and benefits of your options. Limited ultrasound services are offered for the purposes of confirming an intrauterine pregnancy, detecting fetal cardiac activity, and estimating gestational age only. To access this free service, you first need to schedule a pregnancy test and meet with a personal advocate.

Take Your Most Important Next Step

If your pregnancy test results come back positive, your next most important step is to receive an ultrasound. This procedure is safe and painless. Ultrasound tests use sound waves that are transmitted into your belly to get a picture of your pregnancy. Those pictures then are able to verify your pregnancy, decide if your pregnancy is viable (capable of surviving) and whether the fetus is in the proper location in the uterus or lodged outside the uterus, which can be life-threatening. This information will help you decide on all of your options available to you.

Considering Abortion

You Might Not Need One

If you are considering abortion you should determine if you need one before taking any action. As many pregnancies as 25% to 31% will naturally miscarry, which avoids the need for any sort of abortion procedures. An ultrasound will determine if your pregnancy is viable (able to survive) or at the risk of a natural miscarriage.

How Far Along You Are Determines Your Options

Depending upon how far along you are, your options for abortion procedures may differ. Before you are able to visit an abortion clinic it is a good idea to have an ultrasound done, so you now exactly how far along you are. Make an appointment at Parkville Women’s Clinic for free and helpful information regarding abortion procedures for your unique circumstance.
