Personal Statement

Antenatal Diagnostic Center is an outpatient unit located within Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns that sees patients with a variety of conditions that require monitoring during pregnancy. Services performed include a non-stress test or contraction stress test, and ultrasound. The NST is a procedure that monitors the fetus’s heartbeat. The test will monitor the heartbeat when the fetus is at rest and while the fetus is moving. In a healthy fetus, there will be an increase in fetal heart rate when the fetus moves or kicks. Your health care provider will look at a number of patterns in the heart rate tracing to make sure your baby is thriving. A limited ultrasound is also performed at each visit to measure the amniotic fluid index (AFI). This measures the amount of amniotic fluid around the baby. Common reasons to have these tests are:
• You are past your due date
• You have a high-risk pregnancy, i.e. diabetes, hypertension, advanced maternal age
• You are feeling less movement than normal
• You have lost a pregnancy in the past
• Your health care provider suspects fetal growth problems
• You have too much or too little amniotic fluid
