A fetal ultrasound, or sonogram, is an imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of a baby in the uterus.  Ultrasounds are renowned for providing high accuracy without pain.  Fetal ultrasound is often done during the first trimester to confirm and date the pregnancy.  Routine fetal ultrasounds are considered safe for both mother and baby.  Researchers haven't noted any adverse effects of fetal ultrasounds in children followed for several years after birth.1

Free limited ultrasounds are provided at all PASS pregnancy centers.  (See the "About PASS" tab for locations in Lansing, South Holland, and Tinley Park.)
