Can having too many ultrasounds harm baby?

Fern Steyn (sonographer) answers:

Ultrasound has been in use for over 50 years, and no negative side effects have been found. It is a great deal diagnostic tool and plays an important role in obstetrics. An ultrasound also helps you bond with your unborn baby. There is no harm in having another scan, but try to keep ity once a month.
