COVID-19 and pregnancy

You may have many questions and concerns about exposure to COVID-19 during your pregnancy. Our team is here to answer your questions, and create a safe and welcome experience for you and your baby.


We provide your ultrasounds in the safest way possible for you, your baby, and our staff. Due to COVID-19, we allow one adult companion to go with you in the room for your ultrasound. The only other person in the room with you is the expert doing the ultrasound (the sonographer).
