While a level 2 ultrasound may be used for all mothers-to-be, it is extremely beneficial for a pregnancy deemed high risk. This full anatomy scan of your fetus is taken to ensure that your baby is growing normally.
If a previous prenatal testing has indicated fetal anomalies, there is a family history of chromosomal abnormalities, or if you have had spotting during pregnancy, it may be recommended for you to have a level 2 ultrasound.
Usually conducted during 18 to 22 weeks of the pregnancy, it helps expectant parents determine the type of prenatal care that may be required. It also helps prepare for the future of the pregnancy.

Our level 2 ultrasound is a comprehensive, targeted study for a pregnancy that is high risk, for genetic and chromosomal abnormalities like Down syndrome. While this term has come to be loosely associated with standard sonographies typically conducted in the second trimester, it is usually performed at a perinatal center where greater expertise in level 2 ultrasounds is available.

"I just wanted to say THANK YOU. I have read up on quite a bit of expecting moms experiences with their ultrasounds around the country and they were less then favorable, some horrible. But our (my husband and I) visit to your Baptist office was wonderful. The office is nice and decor is great. The tech was patient and educated. She answered all our questions, some before we even asked. She gave us her undivided attention and took her time. I am looking forward to my next appointment. Great service provided!"
