During pregnancy there are few things that women look forward to more than seeing their baby’s picture on an ultrasound screen. However, an ultrasound does much more than reveal a baby’s gender or allow parents to view their babies before they are born. Obstetric ultrasounds are methods of obtaining vital information on a baby’s growth and the baby’s and mother’s health throughout pregnancy. At Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A. we provide high quality ultrasounds as well as comprehensive obstetrical and gynecologic care for our patients. We are sensitive to the needs of our patients during this special time, and we use the latest ultrasound technology and state of the art equipment to monitor pregnancies.
Ultrasound machines work by emitting safe transmissions from a transducer that is placed in contact with the maternal abdomen. The information obtained from these transmissions is reflected back on the ultrasound screen into a picture. Movements such as fetal heart beat, limbs, the brain and other major organs, as well as any malformations in the fetus can be assessed and measured accurately. The physicians and staff at Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A. are experienced in conducting ultrasounds and accurately interpreting their results in order to give parents the most precise information regarding the mother and baby’s health and development.
If you are looking for an OB-GYN practice that offers sensitive, devoted care to women in Acworth, Marietta, and the surrounding areas please call Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A. Ultrasounds done at specific times during pregnancy can provide the most accurate information to doctors and patients, so it is important to find a doctor you trust as soon as possible. Our practice is currently accepting new patients, and we work with most health insurance providers. We look forward to caring for you and your baby!
