Whether you are considering parenting, abortion, or simply have no idea what you plan to do, scheduling your free ultrasound appointment is an important first step in making sure you have all the information you need in order to make an informed decision about the options available to you. Here are 3 ways an ultrasound can help you make an informed choice:

  1. It tells you how far along you are

When you find out you’re pregnant, you might wonder how far along you are. There are different ways to estimate this, but the most accurate method is an ultrasound.

  1. If considering abortion it determines which options are available to you

Knowing how far along you are is important if you’re considering abortion. It helps determine the type of procedure you can have and the costs involved.

  1. It can help identify any complications

An ultrasound checks the health of your pregnancy by measuring the heartbeat. This is crucial information to avoid unnecessary procedures if you’re considering abortion. It can also protect your health by confirming that the pregnancy is in the uterus and not in the fallopian tubes (also known as an ectopic pregnancy).
