Three new state-of-the-art ultrasound machines have been purchased for St John of God Berwick, Geelong, and Mount Lawley hospitals to support personalised maternity care for mums-to-be.

The new equipment allows scans to be completed on site during early stages of pregnancy, giving women a better understanding of any pregnancy risks, and to alleviate anxiety around the baby’s health.

The most common use is to reassure women there is a foetal heartbeat in early pregnancy. Families love seeing their baby on the screen, which helps to foster an improved patient experience.

The ultrasounds are mobile, which provides greater convenience and flexibility, as they can be easily transported between patient rooms, and consulting suites.

St John of God hospitals are using the ultrasounds to support new, low-cost maternity care packages, giving patients great choice for treatment options without compromise.
