Thanks for writing to us

Second levels ultrasound is done to see the organs of the foetus like heart , kidneys , brain ,limbs , spine as well as placenta and cord in detail or you can say it is fetal anatomical assay.

There is no harm on the fetus while doing level-two scan means it is safe and doctor will take some measurements and can give you DVD if you ask for it.

Best wishes
