I am doing preliminary survey research to find a link between ultrasound and autism, preterm labor and other birth defects. I am looking specifically for women who have not had ultrasound to take the survey (I can find many who have had ultrasound) although I am welcoming all mothers to take it for information regarding all of their pregnancies. Your members may consist of women who have wisely chosen not to have ultrasound and would be willing to take my short survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VVJLZBN.

My website is preventbirthdefects.com. Dr. Linda Gilliland

THANK YOU!!!

while I have never had a sonogram I have used doppler to listen to hb which is a form of ultrasound. Do you mean both on your survey? it will be hard to find women that haven't used doppler at all during prego but i'm sure they are out there:)

Your question on how many weeks delivery occured at has 36 to 40s as an answer. Those few weeks could make a huge difference for baby. I would expand your questioner so you can narrow down the birth time frame.

I am only 9 weeks pregnant and not planning on having an ultrasound or doppler unless the midwife recommends one because of complications that arise. 

 

I guess I should fill out your survey after the baby is born?
