Having an ultrasound early in your pregnancy provides an accurate due date and also can help reduce the likelihood of premature delivery—particularly if you enroll in a prenatal care program as soon as possible. Guiding Star Wakota has a Registered Nurse and a Registered Sonographer (RDMS), who are both specifically trained to perform these exams, as well as a medical doctor who reviews all ultrasounds.
Since 2008, Guiding Star Wakota has provided free, limited obstetrical ultrasound examinations to newly pregnant clients. This examination identifies the baby’s gestational age and location and looks for a fetal heartbeat. (Note: This type of examination is not a full fetal diagnostic scan, which is the responsibility of the physician providing prenatal care and not within the scope of practice at GSW).
Most women find the ability to view their baby’s beating heart via the ultrasound machine to be a powerful experience. Find out for yourself by scheduling a free, limited ultrasound today. Call 651.457.1195 to schedule an appointment.
