Allen OB/GYN has 3D ultrasound. This is a medical ultrasound technique, often used during pregnancy, providing three dimensional images of the fetus. Often these images are captured rapidly and animated to produce a "4D ultrasound".

Childbirth Education Classes & Family-Centered Education
Allen Hospital offers a variety of informational classes to help prepare expectant mothers and their families for the experience of childbirth and parenting. It is our goal to provide up-to-date information in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.
Classes are offered at various times throughout the year to help meet the needs of all expectant families. Class size is limited and enrollment is first come, first served. We reserve the right to cancel or shorten a class due to low enrollment. To ensure class registration, payment must be received one week prior to class.

UnityPoint Health - Allen Hospital has been designated a Minimally Invasive Gynecology Center of Excellence by the AAGL (American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists) and Surgical Review Corporation.
The COEMIG program recognizes surgeons and facilities that demonstrate an unparalleled commitment and ability to consistently deliver safe, effective, evidence-based care. The program is structured to help minimally invasive gynecologic surgery providers continuously improve care quality and patient safety.
To achieve this recognition we created and implemented clinical & surgical pathways as well as standard orders for our Laparoscopic and Hysteroscopic procedures. Our clinical pathways cover many areas such as intraoperative anesthesia, perioperative care, counseling of patients, and fluid management. We also require a full complement of consultative services for our patients which include Vascular & General Surgeons, Urologist, Radiologist, Gynecologist, Anesthesiologist, and a Critical Care Specialist.
