Eyewitness for Life is staffed by volunteers. When you make an appointment, we assemble a team including a sonographer (“ultrasound technologist”) to be there just for you, so please be on time for your appointment.
If you must cancel your appointment, please immediately call the referring agency or contact person who made your appointment. Inform them of your need to cancel. After business hours, call (414) 462-5483 to report a cancellation.
Your free ultrasound will be given at the following location:
Eyewitness for Life, Ltd.
9008 W. Burleigh St.
Milwaukee, WI 53222
Parking and entrance is located on Burleigh Street next to Wilke’s Village Pharmacy.
If needed, please call your contact person to see if transportation is available. Bus lines to the clinic are #60 for Burleigh and #57 for 92nd Street.
Check In Procedure:
Please feel free to bring a support person to your appointment. If it is necessary to bring children along, we suggest that you bring someone who can supervise them during your ultrasound.
Preparations Before the Ultrasound:
One hour before your scheduled appointment you MUST drink a MINIMUM of a 16.9 oz water bottle (or it’s equivalent). No coffee or soda should be consumed as these will irritate the bladder. The ultrasound can be given ONLY if you have a full bladder- you should feel an urgency to urinate at the time of your appointment. If you must relieve yourself before the ultrasound, do so only enough to ease the pressure – do not empty your bladder. Your ultrasound will be given as quickly as possible to accommodate you.
Receiving Your Ultrasound:
Your free educational ultrasound will take approximately 15-30 minutes. You will also receive a free picture and DVD of your ultrasound to take home and show your family and friends if desired. If possible, the exam may include a 3-D sonogram of the baby for a unique viewing experience.
Eyewitness For Life, Ltd., is a nonprofit corporation existing under the laws of the State of Wisconsin. All ultrasounds given are nondiagnostic and provided solely for educational purposes.
