Fetal echocardiography is a test similar to an ultrasound. This exam allows your doctor to see the structure and function of your unborn child’s heart. It’s typically done in the second trimester, between weeks 18 to 24... The fetal echo looks at how the blood is flowing through your baby’s arteries and veins. The specialist will look for a number of abnormalities, including- holes in the heart, narrowing of arteries, valves that don't open and close properly.. Its better if you opt for it...
