Limited Diagnostic Ultrasound – NO COST TO YOU
A limited diagnostic ultrasounds or sonogram may be used to confirm your pregnancy. In order to receive a sonogram a pregnancy test must be completed in one of our Centers. If positive, a sonogram can then be scheduled. Both the pregnancy test and sonogram are given without charge. Once you have completed this form you will be contacted about your request.
Our Nurses are trained in limited obstetric ultrasounds. The National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) equips Pregnancy Medical Clinics to achieve excellence in the provision of ultrasound services for our clients. The NIFLA course follows the guidelines from the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) for training in limited obstetric ultrasound. NIFLA is an approved continuing education provider (California Board of Registered Nursing provider #14563).
Signs & Symptoms of Pregnancy
The signs and symptoms of pregnancy vary from woman to woman and even from pregnancy to pregnancy. Some women have no noticeable signs at all. The timing of the onset of signs and symptoms also varies. Early indications may include but are not limited to:
- Late or Missed Period
- Nausea and/or Vomiting
- Frequent Urination
- Spotting or Cramping
- Unexplained Fatigue
- Feeling lightheaded or dizzy
- Food Cravings or Aversions
- Increased Sense of Smell
- Darkening of Nipples
- Sore, Swollen, or Itchy Breasts
Having one or all of these symptoms may be an indicator of a pregnancy, but does not necessarily mean you are pregnant. Women do occasionally experience an inaccurate pregnancy test or the result may be unclear. If you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of pregnancy, schedule medical quality pregnancy testing – at no cost to you.
