Safety of Ultrasound

With my first pregnancy my midwife recommended that we stay away from ultrasounds. At the time I wasn’t sure why but I trusted her judgment and wasn’t that concerned with knowing the baby’s sex anyway. Now that I’m pregnant again I started investigating ultrasound to see what the issue is. What I found confirms the concerns of my midwife.

It turns out there is a strong correlation between ultrasounds and autism. I always thought vaccinations were to blame for this but the evidence is quite convincing that ultrasounds play a large part in the problem of autism. Despite Thimerosal being removed from vaccines the rates for autism are still increasing. Interestingly, there is a higher rate of autism among twins. Usually mothers carrying multiple babies are scanned more frequently. This doesn’t sound like a coincidence to me. There is enough evidence regarding the harmful effects of ultrasound to keep me away from it. It’s a shame that women aren’t informed of the risks before they choose to have an ultrasound done. That’s the way our medical system works though. They aren’t always looking out for our best interests.
