Free Ultrasounds: Wise on the Wallet

04 Feb, 2020

 

 

Are you facing an unplanned pregnancy and financial hardship?

There is an instance where freedom is free and actions speak louder than words. Providing an ultrasound at no cost serves as love in action for many women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy. This affords women the opportunity to have an advocate help her navigate one of the toughest circumstances they may face and also relieves her of the burden of financial difficulty in this situation.

When faced with the decision of what to do in an unplanned pregnancy, you should not be faced with not knowing what services are readily available and weighing the costs.

How much an ultrasound costs you depends on where you get your ultrasound and your insurance coverage. Ultrasounds performed by a licensed medical professional (physician or sonographer) can cost anywhere between $100 and $1000.

Taking a pregnancy test at home is just the beginning. Before making any decisions about pregnancy, the next step is the ultrasound, the most accurate way to see if you are pregnant.

An ultrasound is a painless, safe procedure that uses sound waves to locate a fetal heartbeat, determines how far along you are, and the location of your pregnancy. All of this information is gathered to ensure that your body is healthy and functioning properly. A high-quality limited ultrasound is performed by one of our highly trained registered nurse sonographers.

At Turning Point Pregnancy Resource Center, we provide private and confidential ultrasounds at no-cost. Our limited ultrasound is performed by one of our highly trained registered nurse sonographers who are friendly and knowledgeable.

Case Study

We had a patient who came in for a free ultrasound. She had an unplanned pregnancy and was in a crisis situation. Her partner of 10 years had left her unexpectantly, and that left her no choice but to live with family members suffering from mental illness. She was not able to work due to transportation; she had been involved in a car accident with a total car loss at her expense. She was mentally, emotionally and financially exhausted and found TPPRC in her search for help. Not only did we provide her with no-cost medical services including a free ultrasound, but we gave her practical resources, positive reinforcement and encouragement .The patient reported feeling very safe and loved. She received above and beyond what she initially expected at her appointment! The patient, who was nervous, afraid and anxious left feeling hopeful and supported.

The free ultrasound we provide at TPPRC is an important medical service that can help you make an educated decision about your pregnancy. Schedule an appointment today.
