Pregnancy Ultrasound | Preparation & Expectations | Results and Values

What do the test results mean?

A pregnancy ultrasound can show if the baby is growing in a healthy manner with no visible problems. It shows that the baby is in a healthy position. It also shows that the mother has a healthy-appearing placenta with high enough amniotic fluid levels.

Healthy ultrasound results do not guarantee a perfect baby or an uncomplicated birth. But it can be helpful in telling the healthcare provider how a woman's pregnancy is progressing.

Abnormal results vary. A woman should discuss the results and any treatments with her healthcare provider.
