Obstetric ultrasound is also known as prenatal ultrasound. This test is done to create real-time images of the fetus or embryo in the womb (uterus) of pregnant women. This method uses sound waves to create images of the baby as well as the mother’s reproductive organs such as the uterus and ovaries. It is a noninvasive test which means that it is not harmful to either the mother or the baby. Because of this reason, it is the most used and preferred method to monitor the condition of the pregnant mother and her unborn baby. This procedure can be done at any stage of the pregnancy.

Doppler ultrasound, a special ultrasound technique, may also be done along with the obstetric ultrasound to monitor the flow or movement of blood through blood vessels in the body.

What are the uses of Obstetric Ultrasound?

Obstetric ultrasound has a variety of uses, some of which are listed below.

  • Checking for the presence of an embryo or fetus.
  • Determining the age of the pregnancy.
  • Checking for multiple pregnancies.
  • Estimating fetal growth.
  • Checking birth defects or hereditary conditions.
  • Determining the position of the fetus and placenta.
  • Estimating the amount of amniotic fluid.
  • Confirming the various stages of pregnancy.
  • Checking for defects in the cervix.

How to prepare?

  • You will be asked to lie on the table in a position as described by the radiologist.
  • The bladder must be full to take clear images for the ultrasound. (not necessary after 3 months)
  • As with other ultrasound, you should wear loose clothing.
  • A gel is used on the abdomen on which a probe called a transducer is pressed. The transducer sends and collects sound wave and the image is displayed on the computer screen.
  • Sometime, to get a better visual of the area of investigation, the radiologist might press the transducer with extra force.
  • This procedure may take up to 30 minutes.
  • Normal activities can be continued after the examination unless stated otherwise by the radiologist.


The doctor will analyze the image, and further brief you if there are any birth defects or abnormalities. If there is any concern, further evaluation or imaging may be required. Follow-up with the doctor is very important to analyze if the defect is unstable or has stabilized.
