my midwife set up my 18 week ultra sound for me.
she also requested bloodwork and like things.

she is a medical proffesional, and can do all the regular things that an OB can do.

at least here in Canada~

how about the US? just trying to figure out if it's part of the fees, or something you can pay for as an optional..

Typically, your contract with her will specify if ultrasounds are included - generally if they are, its only for ones that are necessary.

For elective sonograms, and with some midwives necessary diagnostic ones, are additional. Typically insurance can only be filed with necessary diagnostic ultrasounds. But - for example, I went and got the 4d ultrasound on my own and paid for it out of pocket (insurance doesnt cover it for the fun of it lol).

I could have gotten one, but didn't see the point. I choose not to do routine u/s which is actually the current ACOG recommendation for very low risk women.
