I have one ultrasound pre pregnancy, a level 2 that takes forever and measures every last inch of that baby, just for that reason, to check and double check for any potential issues. It would affect my choice of where I birthed if it was clear from an ultrasound that my baby would need serious medical attention immediately after birth. There are not many instances where that could be determined from ultrasound, but Im thinking spina bifida or a heart valve problem or something. So for taht reason, I am comfortable having one ultrasound per pregnancy. Others will feel differently about benefits and risks, but these are my reasons for wanting an ultrasound.
