Fetal echocardiography is a test that is done while the baby is still in the womb. It is most often done during the second trimester of pregnancy. This is when a woman is about 18 to 24 weeks pregnant. The procedure is similar to that of a pregnancy ultrasound. You will lie down for the procedure.
Sometimes an endo-vaginal echocardiogram is done early in pregnancy to monitor the developing fetus’ heartbeat. The healthcare provider puts a small echocardiogram probe into the vagina instead of putting it on the belly.
