Updated Ultrasound Services at Alma Midwifery!

We are very excited to bring you updated information about our ultrasound services!

We currently offer the following services on Tuesdays from 9 am – 5 pm at our clinic, located at 1608 SE Ankeny St, Portland, OR 97214.  These services are open to both Alma clients and non-Alma clients (if you have a referral from your provider)!  To schedule an appointment, please call our front desk at 503-233-3001.  Our ultrasound “menu” will give families many choices and as always, in the absence of any complications, it is still perfectly fine to have an “ultrasound-free pregnancy”.  Laura Erickson, director at Alma wanted to add this to our good news about the ultrasound program: If you are an Alma client, please discuss ultrasound options with your midwife, she will assist you in strategizing the best time for a scan and give you a form (fancily named reacquisition form) the front desk needs that form to schedule your ultrasound and Marian needs it to guide her in the proper type of scan to provide to you.


Also, please welcome our new ultrasound technician, Marian Packer!  Marian’s bio and photo are below:

My name is Marian and I am so excited to be a part of the team at Alma. Ultrasound is something that I’m very passionate about and I can’t wait to meet you and your family and scan your little one(s)!
I consider myself an Oregon native although I traveled around quite a bit while my dad was in the military. After he retired my family settled in Klamath Falls, OR (also home to quite a few of my relatives) where I attended high school and college.  I graduated from Oregon Institute of Technology with a BS in Diagnostic Medical Sonography and minor in Psychology. Shortly after graduation I was registered with ARDMS, the national governing board of ultrasound, and became certified in OB/GYN as well as Abdomen and Superficial Structures. 
In my free time I enjoy ice skating, cross country skiing, hiking, and trying to explore all that Portland has to offer.  Most evenings you can find me curled up on the couch reading a good book with my husband and our cat, Olive.
