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
- 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.
