Ultrasound Guidelines

We ask that you observe the following guidelines:


    • Finish drinking 32 ounces of water ONE HOUR BEFORE your scheduled appointment time. DO NOT empty your bladder before your appointment.
    • If you arrive for your fetal ultrasound without a full bladder you will be rescheduled.


  • ONE ADULT OBSERVER is allowed in the room while a fetal ultrasound is being performed.
    • This must be the same person for the duration of the exam.
    • NO CHILDREN are allowed in the exam room or to be left unattended in the waiting room.


  • NO audio or video taping is allowed.
    • Ultrasound is a diagnostic test, not a tool for entertainment.


  • It is very important for you to arrive on time for your appointment.
    • If you arrive more than 10 minutes late we will have to reschedule your exam.
