Maryke Kilian: Sonographer

scansFrom the moment you feel fluttering butterflies in your tummy, you begin bonding with your baby. Mother nature intensifies this relationship as weeks go by and with the help of an ultrasound, pregnancy now becomes very real. 

Maryke Kilian performs ultrasound scans ranging from early pregnancy scan to 3D and 4D scans at Genesis Clinic. The procedure is carried out in a dimly lit room so the sonographer is able to get good images of your baby. The sonographer will put ultrasound gel on your stomach and tuck tissue paper around your clothing to protect it from the gel. The gel makes sure there is good contact between the machine and your skin.

The sonographer passes a handheld device called a probe over your skin. It is this probe that sends out ultrasound waves and picks them up when they bounce back. A black and white picture of the baby will appear on the ultrasound screen. The sonographer will carefully examine your baby's body. Having the scan does not hurt, but the sonographer may need to apply slight pressure to get the best views of the baby.
