About Ultrasonido

Si usted es como la mayoría de las mujeres, se realizará un ultrasonido de rutina de manera que su doctor pueda obtener información sobre la salud de su bebé. Aunque esta breve e indolora prueba (5 a 10 minutos) se realiza con más frecuencia durante el segundo trimestre, ésta puede practicarse en cualquier momento entre la quinta semana de gestación y el parto.

Dé un vistazo fugaz al interior de su abdomen hichado y observe con esta herramienta visual de identificación por ultrasonido, cómo los bebés crecen y cambian. Estas imágenes dinámicas le mostrarán cómo luce un feto a las 17, 19 y 30 semanas. ¡Sólo deslice el cursor sobre las diferentes partes del cuerpo y listo!
