Ultrasound can be used to detect and confirm a pregnancy. Mend offers free limited obstetrical ultrasound scans. These scans are not intended for diagnosing abnormalities of the pregnancy or gender. They are used for the following medical purposes:
– Determine the viability of a pregnancy – is it progressing normally.
– Determine the pregnancy is not ectopic commonly known as tubal.
– Determine the gestational age of the pregnancy – how far along you are.
These are all important to determine what options are available and if unexpected medical care may be needed.
