That first ultrasound appointment is so exciting when you’re expecting. You finally get to see your baby. Nature Coast Women's Care & Family Medicine in Tallahassee, Florida, understands the importance of the ultrasound for expectant mothers. If you’d like to schedule an ultrasound, call the office or using the online booking agent to schedule an appointment.
An ultrasound is a noninvasive procedure that uses sound waves to generate an image. When you’re pregnant, the ultrasound not only lets you see your baby, but allows the doctor to evaluate the health of your growing baby, including a look at the limbs, brain, and heart.
Ultrasounds are considered a very safe procedure for pregnant women.
The team at Nature Coast Women's Care & Family Medicine recommends you come in for at least two ultrasounds during your pregnancy.
The team schedules your first ultrasound at 18 weeks to assess your baby’s heart. The second ultrasound occurs at week 34 to measure your baby’s size.
You may need an ultrasound at another point in your life other than pregnancy. Ultrasounds are used to detect:
The doctors at Nature Coast Women's Care & Family Medicine may recommend a vaginal ultrasound, which is an ultrasound that uses a special wand shaped to fit in your vagina and create images of your pelvic area.
The team at Nature Coast Women's Care & Family Medicine may also recommend an ultrasound to get a better look at your internal organs such as your uterus, ovaries, gallbladder, stomach, heart, liver, or kidneys.
If you’d like to schedule an ultrasound, call the Nature Coast Women's Care & Family Medicine clinic or book an appointment using the online booking agent today.
