What Exactly Is An Ultrasound or Sonogram?Friday, February 17th, 2017
Ultrasounds are considered to be a very safe method of providing valuable information during pregnancy. There is no indication that they are harmful or affect the baby in any way. Some ultrasound equipment can provide a photo or video of the baby in 3-D or 4-D. This gives and image of the baby that is strikingly detailed and clear. Instead of a black and white, shady image, the baby looks very much like he or she will after birth.
Many medical practitioners now do more detailed 3-D/4-D ultrasounds. I have to say that I am still fond of the images made by traditional ultrasounds. They leave a little more mystery as to what the baby will look like. And I very much like surprises.
Most of the ultrasound practices that I am aware of offer these when doing their ultrasounds. I believe there will soon be a time when the “old fashioned” way will no longer be an option. I’d love to hear what you think.
