Approximately 20% of verified pregnancies will end in miscarriage during the first trimester. Before an abortion, knowing whether your pregnancy is even likely to be carried to term (viable) is vital. Your body has its own natural mechanism for taking care of a nonviable pregnancy, avoiding an unnecessary and costly procedure.
Free, limited ultrasounds are available to qualified clients.
Having a free ultrasound can determine:
- Accurate gestational age (how far along you are).
- What abortion procedures you are eligible for at this stage of pregnancy.
- If there is a measurable heartbeat.
- Whether the pregnancy is in the uterus (not an ectopic/tubal pregnancy).
