Is Ultrasound worthwhile for Pregnant Women?
For many years I have asked this question of many women…staff, and even my own daughter. Why are you getting an ultrasound? The general answer is to ensure that the baby is OK and also because they are curious to know the sex in advance so they know whether to paint the babies room blue or pink.
They all believe it is safe and not harmful to the baby…because that is what the doctors say. But, are they right? I don’t know because I have not personally studied the subject but my view on this matter is why subject the baby to a treatment which no one really knows whether it is safe long term?
There have been many, many protocols and treatments over the years that have been deemed safe by the medical profession only to find, sometimes decades later that they were wrong. So, in my opinion why take the risk. I have expressed this view many times but it seems curiosity always gets the expectant mother and they do it anyway.
Anyway, here is a guy that has done some research on the matter and has written an article about it. If you or any of your family or friends are pregnant it may be a good idea to read the article and at least be better informed to make your own decisions.
