If you are uncertain about which choice to make regarding your pregnancy or are thinking about abortion, we recommend that you have a free limited ultrasound to answer some of these questions regarding your pregnancy: First, am I even pregnant? How far along am I? Does my pregnancy appear viable (the baby has a heartbeat)? Is my pregnancy growing inside the uterus? Finding out these answers allows you to more thoroughly explore the risks and benefits of your options.
The Hope Clinic offers limited ultrasound examinations for purposes of confirming an intrauterine pregnancy, detecting fetal cardiac activity, and estimating gestational age. (Our ultrasounds are not for the purposes of diagnosing or detecting any medical problem, the sex of the baby or the condition for the baby or client.)
To access this free service, you first need to schedule a pregnancy test and consultation appointment. If your test is positive and you are estimated to be between six and fourteen weeks along with no medical exclusions, you will then be scheduled for an ultrasound.
