Prenatal Ultrasound

NSMI offers prenatal ultrasounds. This is a non-invasive medical procedure that involves high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures in real time of your fetus and placenta. Prenatal ultrasounds are often used to confirm the health of a fetus, detect any medical issues and verify the gestational age of the baby.

You will need a referral from your general doctor or specialist.
