If your pregnancy test is positive, your next step is to receive an ultrasound. It will inform you about your pregnancy health and give you insight into other vital details about your pregnancy. Our obstetrical ultrasounds at Human Life Services are entirely free and confidential.

How Ultrasounds Work

You may be wondering how ultrasounds work. An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to detect images from your uterus. A gel-like substance goes on your abdomen and on a transducer to pick up the echoes that bounce back. If you are in your very early stages of pregnancy, a transvaginal ultrasound may be needed.

Why You Need One

Ultrasounds are necessary for moving forward with any pregnancy decision. It can alert you to any pregnancy concerns or complications. Most of all, an ultrasound tells you three important details about your pregnancy:

  1. How far along you are
  2. Where your pregnancy is located (in or outside the uterus)
  3. If it’s a viable pregnancy
