Free Limited First-Trimester Ultrasounds
Lifeline offers free “limited” 1st trimester ultrasounds. These “limited” obstetrical ultrasound examinations are provided by medical professionals (usually registered nurses) trained and competent in these procedures.
Lifeline’s Medical Director has authorized our provision of limited ultrasounds, to assess a pregnancy’s viability, followed by a physician’s review of all scans. Our limited ultrasounds are non-diagnostic in nature, but can let you know approximately how many weeks you are into your pregnancy, and if your pregnancy is viable.
A positive pregnancy test alone will not tell you if your pregnancy is viable (able to continue), as 1/4 to 1/3 of all pregnancies result in miscarriage, usually related to chromosomal factors. Since the baby’s heart begins to beat between 21-24 days after conception, the fetal heart rate can be measured. Confirming that the pregnancy is IN the uterus will establish viability (or lack of).
This free ultrasound will help you know if a “decision” even needs to be made! But if you ARE pregnant, you DO have choices!
Reliable pregnancy testing with immediate results
No more wondering or worrying if you’re pregnant or not. Our laboratory-quality pregnancy tests are 99% accurate and can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after fertilization.
