How Many Ultrasounds During Pregnancy is Safe?
There is no set number of ultrasound scans provided during a pregnancy. Ultrasound scans are offered to ensure that both mother and baby are doing well and to ensure that the pregnancy is progressing safely. All pregnant women should receive more than one ultrasound during their pregnancy, however there are some pregnancies considered ‘high risk’ which require multiple ultrasounds. There is no evidence to show that ultrasounds are harmful and as such, a reasonable number of scans throughout a pregnancy is very common and safe.
