The safety of ultrasound on pregnancy has been studied for over 40 years and has not been shown to cause any harm to the mother and fetus regardless of the type of ultrasound procedure and frequency of the scan. We suggest you discuss this with your attending OB- GYN doctor.


Can I bring my husband or companion during the ultrasound procedure?

Before the pandemic, we normally allow the husband plus one or two companions to enter the center so they can view your baby in a large wall mounted HD screen monitor. But now, safety protocols for COVID 19 would allow ONLY the patient to come inside the center.
