About this Course 

This course is a walk-through of the technology and processes of ultrasound. From the initial conception through to the third trimester, and the different types of ultrasound done at each stage of the pregnancy.


From Bump to Baby and Beyond.
Ultrasounds may be done for non-medical reasons, such as to produce images for the parents or to determine the sex of the baby. Even more so, your doctor might order more ultrasounds if they’ve detected a problem in previous ultrasounds or blood tests.
Pregnancy ultrasounds provide your doctor with plenty of valuable information. The results allow them to monitor your baby’s growth, detect abnormalities, predict your due date, determine whether you’re carrying multiples, see the position of your placenta, and make out the sex of your baby. 
Understand the basic principles of ultrasound in pregnancy.
You'll learn
  • The female reproductive system
  • The first trimester of pregnancy
  • How to check amniotic fluid levels

Happy learning.
