The Catherine Foundation provides FREE limited, non-diagnostic ultrasounds.
Your doctor may request an ultrasound exam to confirm the status of your pregnancy. This information is important whether you are considering abortion or continuing your pregnancy.
The following criteria must be met in order to receive an ultrasound:
Positive Pregnancy test
This test may be a written confirmation from a medical provider or it may be administered by the Catherine Foundation staff for free.
At least 6 weeks pregnant
You must be at least 6 weeks from the first day of your last menstrual cycle. This is generally the earliest you can visualize a pregnancy via ultrasound.
No cramping, bleeding or history of ectopic pregnancies
These issues regard safety for you and your baby.
If you are unsure if you qualify, feel free to call and speak to our nurse at (301)932-8811.
