Having an ultrasound

If you have an ultrasound exam this month, you're in for an extraordinary experience. Ultrasound allows you to see your baby's shape and form, including the tiny heart beating in the tiny chest.

Most of the time, babies are completely healthy, and an ultrasound exam is an exciting and rewarding experience. For many moms-to-be, it's as thrilling as first feeling the baby move. Ultrasound also provides fathers with a more direct means of experiencing pregnancy.

Invite your partner to accompany you to your ultrasound exam. This tangible image can strengthen his emotional involvement in your pregnancy and foster his attachment to your baby.

For more details on how an ultrasound exam is performed and what it can show, see "Decision Guide: Understanding prenatal testing" on page 289.
