Free Ultrasound - The Pregnancy Network

What We Offer

The Pregnancy Network is the only place in Guilford County to provide free ultrasounds. We provide what is known as “Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound.” This type of ultrasound seeks to verify three things in your pregnancy:

  • Viability of the pregnancy
  • Heartbeat
  • Gestational age

The main purpose of the ultrasound is to confirm pregnancy. Our services are administered by staff Registered Nurses who are trained and certified in administering limited obstetrical ultrasounds.

Ultrasounds are overseen by a volunteer medical board consisting of local medical doctors who are board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology. They are practicing doctors in Greensboro. These doctors ensure our policies and procedures remain at the highest standards for clients. Click here to meet our Medical Directors.

Watch the video below to hear one of our Medical Directors, Dr. Charlie Pickens, explain what is looked for in each ultrasound scan.
