In the last trimester, during a planned ultrasound, an additional Doppler study is performed. Expectant mothers are wondering how necessary this procedure is, and will it harm the child? Where can I take this study, and is it free?
Modern technologies allow us to evaluate not only the internal organs of the baby, but also how comfortable it is for him to be there. For this, dopplerography is used.
Thanks to the study in the last terms, the doctor evaluates how well the child feels and whether he receives enough oxygen. This diagnostic method is very important for an objective picture of pregnancy, it is highly informative and easy to carry out. Ideally, women should undergo Doppler twice: at 20-24 weeks of pregnancy, and also at 30-32 weeks.
