Step 2: Ultrasound

Sac Valley Women's Health

If your pregnancy test is positive and you meet the requirements, we will schedule an ultrasound appointment for you here at Sac Valley Women’s Health in Sacramento.

Why do I need an ultrasound?

Sac Valley Women’s Health offers limited obstetrical ultrasounds to those who qualify. The ultrasound helps answer the following questions or concerns:

  • Confirm pregnancy
  • Detect fetal heartbeat
  • Determine fetal age
  • Determine due date
  • Determine location of pregnancy (intrauterine/ectopic)
  • The ultrasound examination is not intended to diagnose any abnormalities, problems and/or gender.

How should I prepare for an ultrasound?

Our staff will provide you instructions for your exam, but you should wear a comfortable two-piece outfit for the appointment.
