Are Prenatal Ultrasounds Safe? Questions during Pregnancy

When you are pregnant, chances are you will have an ultrasound of the baby. While rountine ultrasounds have been proven safe..how much is too much? Are their risks associated with ultrasounds?Recently during my last pregnancy, I was asked if I wanted to do a 4d ultrasound of the baby? After reviewing several articles online…my conclusion was NO.  Not enough is known about the risks associated with 4D ultrasounds to take a chance. I always prefer to err on the side of caution, so I opted not to do it. Want to read more..see my longer article about Prenatal Ultrasounds.

    ultrasound radiations can be dangerous for the the body and regular exposure to them can result in serious consequences so i think ultrasounds radiations should not be used and if their use is necessary than they should be used with care.thanks for raising an important issue.keep it up.
