Obstetric Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a painless and safe procedure which creates images of a child. Ultrasound imaging, also known as sonography or ultrasound scanning, involves the use of ultrasound gel placed directly on your skin and a small transducer (probe). At Motherhood, the procedure does not include the use of ionizing radiation. Hence, it is safe for the monitoring and diagnosis of pregnant women and their child.

At Motherhood Hospitals, ultrasound images are obtained in real-time. Hence, it shows the structure and movement of the physical organs of the body as well as the blood flowing through the blood vessels.

Obstetric Ultrasound uses sound waves to create images of a child (fetus or embryo) within a pregnant woman, as well as the ovaries and uterus of a mother.

The most common uses of the procedure include:

  • To estimate the age of the pregnancy
  • To evaluate the position of the placenta
  • To check for shortening or opening of the cervix
  • To establish the presence of a living fetus/embryo
  • To determine the amount of amniotic fluid around the baby
  • To diagnose congenital abnormalities of the fetus
  • To assess fetal well-being
  • To evaluate the position of the fetus
  • To asses fetal growth
  • To determine if there are multiple pregnancies

How is the procedure performed?

Motherhood Hospitals offer obstetric ultrasound in two ways,

Abdominal Ultrasound

In Motherhood Hospitals, you will be deployed to lying face-up on a test table that can be easily moved or tilted. Then, a trained supervisor will apply a warm water-based gel to the abdomen. This gel will allow a secure contact with the body and eliminate air pockets between the skin and the probe, which can prevent the sound waves from passing into your body. The transducer is placed in such a way that it can be moved back and forth to capture the desired image. It is the most commonly used procedures during pregnancy.

Vaginal Ultrasound

Our team of experts at Motherhood Hospitals preferred abdominal ultrasound over vaginal ultrasound because vaginal ultrasound is restricted to the first trimester of pregnancy. In order to perform this procedure, your bladder needs to be emptied.

Benefits of Obstetric Ultrasound
