Why Elective Ultrasound FAQ
There are many instances in which a pregnant patient may need to have several ultrasounds to monitor her pregnancy. In most cases, women are allowed only one or two glimpses of their growing baby because they have a normal pregnancy and medical insurance will not pay for additional exams. I decided to open the Storks Nest after recognizing the desire of these persons to be able to have an elective ultrasound, in a comfortable, relaxed setting, shared with loved ones. This is the only such facility in the northern Illinois/southern Wisconsin region.
Ultrasound has been utilized for over thirty years, and not been found to have any risk or adverse effect on the developing fetus, particularly when performed by trained, experienced professionals.
