All patients are required to complete the first 4 forms and turn them in at the time of your appointment. If you do not complete them prior to your arrival – we will provide you with copies once you arrive – but ask that you arrive 15 minutes earlier so that you have time to complete the forms. If you are scheduled to meet with a genetic counselor – you also need to complete the genetic counseling questionnaire.
Why is an ultrasound exam so important in pregnancy?
— During the first trimester, a fetal ultrasound determines the health of an early pregnancy with the measurement of the nuchal translucency.
— During the second trimester, a fetal ultrasound rules out most birth defects with a comprehensive evaluation of the fetal anatomy.
— During the third trimester, a fetal ultrasound evaluates the size of the developing baby and identifies pregnancies with abnormal growth.
