About Ultrasounds

Ultrasounds give us an exciting window into the growth and the development of your new baby, and they're one of the foundational tools your OB/GYN doctor will use to care for you. During an ultrasound, your pregnancy doctor will slowly move a transducer across your abdomen. The transducer emits sound waves, which bounce off of the tissues, body fluids, and bones of your baby, giving us a clear picture of your baby on the monitor. We can perform an ultrasound at any point during pregnancy, but we'll commonly perform one during the first trimester to confirm your pregnancy and see how far along you are, as well as the second trimester to determine your baby's sex. Your pregnancy doctor may also recommend ultrasounds to check for developmental or skeletal abnormalities and better understand how your baby is developing.

In some cases, we'll recommend ultrasound treatment to diagnose or monitor certain health problems like pelvic pain or a mass in the pelvis, a lump in the breast, infertility, or abnormal bleeding. Normally, we'll transfer you to Doylestown Hospital to have these procedures performed. 

Ultrasound Options at Doylestown Women’s Health Center

We're proud to offer basic ultrasound services during the first trimester and sometimes the second trimester as a regular part of our prenatal care. We always want treatment to be as convenient and affordable as possible for you, so depending on your insurance, we may refer you to Doylestown Hospital if you need a second or third-trimester ultrasound. Our OB/GYN treatment team works closely with the doctors and staff at Doylestown Hospital, helping us deliver comprehensive pregnancy care as conveniently as possible for our patients.
