3D/4D Ultrasounds in Colorado Springs
Colorado Obstetrics & Women’s Health provides complete prenatal care for the women of Colorado Springs. Included in the care are 2D ultrasounds and optional 3D/4D ultrasounds to measure the progress of your baby’s growth and development. The first ultrasound is usually performed around 6 - 9 weeks of gestation, to date the beginning of your pregnancy. The ultrasound is performed by one of our certified technicians and then analyzed by Dr. Hammond. Additional ultrasounds may be performed throughout your pregnancy as well to continually measure the growth and progress of your baby. COOB Women’s Health is now offering a free 3D/4D ultrasound done between 28 – 32 weeks if your insurance does not pay for one. 3D/4D ultrasounds are very special as they allow you to see a more complete picture of your new baby’s facial features.
These may include:
- First Trimester Screening – 13 weeks of pregnancy.
- Second Trimester Detailed Anatomic Screening – 18-20 weeks of pregnancy.
- Third-trimester evaluation for growth, anatomy, amniotic fluid level or cervical length, which is used to monitor for preterm labor. This is typically when the 3D/4D ultrasound is performed.
All of our ultrasounds can be performed conveniently right here in our Colorado Springs office. If you are pregnant or think you may be, call our office at (719) 634-8800 to get started with your prenatal care.
