Counseling the Not So Normal OB Sonogram Results

Patricia A. McGlinchey, MS, RN, WHNP-BC

Obstetrical sonograms today are used to confirm gestational size and dates, along with placental location, adequate growth and normal anatomy. With confirmation there can be findings that require additional counseling with our patients. Counseling OB patients regarding the sonogram results, especially when there is a not so normal finding, takes time and requires accurate information.
