Even if you have had a positive pregnancy test, it is important to have the test verified because about 25% of pregnancies end naturally in miscarriage. Your local EW participating medical facility provides ultrasound technology to confirm a viable pregnancy.

Making a decision you feel good about includes getting all the information you need. If you are considering abortion, you'll be provided with a state-of-the-art ultrasound free of charge. And unlike some facilities, you will be allowed to see the results of the scan.

The ultrasound can help answer the following questions;

- Is the pregnancy located where it should be (in the uterus and not the tube)?

- Approximately how far along are you?

- Do we see what we would expect to see in a healthy early pregnancy?

- Is there fetal cardiac activity?

All ultrasounds are reviewed by a medical doctor. If the ultrasound exam indicates possible problems, you will receive a referral for further care.
