I myself had 2 in my first pregnancy, one around 20 weeks with no reason, and one around 38 weeks because my midwife thought it might be twins or transverse. i also plan to get one in this pregnancy but i wonder what others think... is it really safe, or is it a risk?
Is Ultrasound Safe? The NIH cautions against routine use of ultrasound, noting that "the data on clinical efficacy and safety do not allow recommendation for routine screening at this time; there is a need for multidisciplinary randomized controlled clinical trials for an adequate assessment."
Similarly, the WHO urges prudence: "Ultrasound screening during pregnancy is now in widespread use without sufficient evaluation. Research has demonstrated its efficacy for certain complications of pregnancy but the published material does not justify the routine use of ultrasound in pregnant women."
