At that point, she will determine whether you qualify for a limited ultrasound at this appointment or if she will need to schedule a date in the future

Additionally, if you have brought your spouse, boyfriend, or a male friend, a male advocate will be available to help him understand his role, listen, offer advice, and talk through issues surrounding pregnancy.
