Ultrasounds
A traditional ultrasound allows you and your doctor to see images of your baby while he or she is inside of the womb. This imaging technology also allows your doctor to see the baby’s blood vessels and organs. Ultrasounds give your doctor a chance to ensure that the baby is growing normally and allows he or she to spot any concerns early. During the test, an ultrasound technician moves a wand over the belly. The wand, called a transducer, transmits sound signals which bounce off of the tissues inside of your body to create an image of the baby inside your womb.

4K Ultrasounds
This state-of-the-art technology is similar to a traditional ultrasound. It also uses sound waves which bounce off of the tissue to create an image of the baby. However, the technology behind 4K ultrasounds allows you and your doctor to see ultra-high definition images of your baby. While 4K ultrasounds are not used diagnostically, they give a mother-to-be the chance to see their baby like never before.

Lifestyle Recommendations
Women’s Medical Center considers the health of their patients of the utmost importance. Therefore, Women’s Medical Center offers necessary lifestyle recommendations. Dietary recommendations ensure that your nutritional needs, more important during pregnancy than ever, are taken care of and acceptable for both you and your baby. Your doctor can also help you take a look into prenatal exercise, which has proven to relieve stress and help ease labor.
