Are you pregnant and not sure what’s next? Prenatal care is the medical care you receive when you’re pregnant and is an essential part of the process.

The role of ultrasounds in prenatal care is essential to understanding the health of your pregnancy and what steps are next in your unique situation. We can help.

Why is Prenatal Care Important?

According to NIH, early prenatal visits may improve the chances of a healthy pregnancy. If you suspect pregnancy, schedule a visit to your healthcare provider to begin prenatal care. Most prenatal visits include:

  • A physical exam
  • Weight checks
  • A urine sample

Depending on the stage of the pregnancy, you may also do blood and imaging tests, including ultrasound exams. Prenatal visits include discussions about the mother’s health, the fetus’s health, and other questions regarding the pregnancy.

Why Ultrasounds Matter

Ultrasounds safeguard your health and the health of your pregnancy. A pregnancy ultrasound offers essential details about your pregnancy. These include:

  • How far along you are: You may not be as early in pregnancy as you think. To be sure of your pregnancy’s age, get an ultrasound.
  • Location of the pregnancy: A pregnancy can develop outside the uterus. This is called an ectopic pregnancy, a life-threatening condition that requires immediate medical intervention.
  • The viability: An ultrasound will detect whether there is a healthy heartbeat, which is vital considering roughly 26% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. It’s possible to experience a miscarriage without any immediate symptoms.
