Ultrasound

Ultrasound services provided by St. Theresa's OBGYN

When discussing a growing fetus inside the body and the many variables that may impact the fetus, and therefore, the mother's point of view, there are a variety of devices to allow us to see inside the body including our 3D ultrasound.

3D Ultrasound helps your doctor understand the health and maturity of the fetus. This sensitive technology is operated by our local 3D ultrasound specialists.

The goal of ultrasound is to give an image of the fetus to both the parents and specialists in order to surveil and monitor the baby's growth and development in the womb. Along with this development check, the doctors also use the ultrasound image to determine the age of the fetus, potential issues with the uterus, the position of the baby in the uterus, and any signs of birth defects

The ultrasound used in the field of OBGYN refers to the diagnostic imaging technique that makes a photo of the womb carrying the child so we can access the child and monitor a whole host of useful information for the parents' peace of mind and specialists' understanding.

The best part of the 3D ultrasound is the chance to see the babies' faces for the first time. The attachment we all have at the first glimpse of a child is incredible and is one of the best first moments of parenthood. The realization of having a baby that you'll one day be able to hold is astounding, and showing the baby off to family and friends can be an absolute joy!
