What to Expect

Although each patient receives specific instructions on how to prepare for various screenings, Holy Name's team of maternal-fetal experts has compiled common pre-test instructions to ensure each screening produces correct results.

  • Amniocentesis: Drink 3 (8oz.) glasses of non-carbonated fluid. Finish drinking one hour prior to the ultrasound test. Do not urinate – a full bladder is required. A light breakfast is recommended.
  • Chorionic villus sampling (CVS): Follow the directions for amniocentesis.
  • First trimester ultrasound: Follow the directions for amniocentesis.
  • First trimester transvaginal ultrasound (up to 12 weeks pregnant): No preparation required
  • Non-stress or biophysical profile: No preparation required
  • Second trimester ultrasound: Follow the directions for amniocentesis
