An ultrasound, also known as a sonogram, uses high-frequency sound waves to provide a visualization of the fetus, placenta and other structures within the pelvis. Ultrasounds are used to determine the gender, age, rate of growth and position of the fetus. It’s also helpful in determining the number of fetuses within the womb and any possible birth defects.
A vaginal delivery is the most common form of child birth. During the labor process, it’s normal to experience high levels of discomfort, pain and even stress. Medication is typically used to ease the mother during the procedure.
A vaginal birth after cesarean is rare but not uncommon. It occurs with the cesarean delivery of a baby followed by the vaginal birth of another one. Several factors can determine the use of a VBAC, and include:
- Fetal health
- Pelvis size
- Prior delivery
This condition occurs during pregnancy. Between weeks 26 and 28, a patient may be asked to undergo a screening for gestational diabetes.
