A positive pregnancy test (including a home test) is an indication of pregnancy, but not a confirmation. An ultrasound can confirm a pregnancy and provide you with vital information to help inform and empower you in your decision-making process.
We offer a free limited obstetric ultrasound to anyone who has a positive pregnancy test at our center.

What Does an Obstetric Ultrasound Show?
At our center, in most cases, we can see:
- whether or not the pregnancy is in the uterus where it belongs, (as opposed to an ectopic or “tubal” pregnancy, which is a serious complication).
- the presence or absence of a fetal heartbeat
- your approximate gestational age
- whether or not you are carrying a single fetus or multiples (depending on gestational age)
If you are considering an abortion, an ultrasound must be performed to determine how far along you are and will determine the cost of the abortion and if you qualify for the abortion pill.
If you are considering making an adoption plan or desiring to parent your child, an ultrasound may not be required by your doctor, but it can be a crucial part of your prenatal plan.
What Can I Expect?
At your first appointment, we will provide a free pregnancy test at our center. Depending on your last known period (LMP) and our availability, we will either perform an ultrasound during this appointment or schedule one for a future date.
Before your ultrasound appointment, you will be instructed to drink 1-2 glasses of water an hour before your appointment to ensure a full bladder. This can help our medical personnel see more clearly during your ultrasound.
You can also talk about your medical history, pregnancy concerns, or ask questions about the abortion pill or the various types of surgical abortions.

If the test is positive, we will schedule an ultrasound and talk about all your options.
