In the Netherlands, there is the possibility to have the health of your baby examined during pregnancy. This is called prenatal screening. This allows screening for chromosomal and physical abnormalities. It is important to consider whether you want to receive information about this. If not, you can, of course, inform us.
We will inform you in detail if you want to know more about these studies. It can help to think in advance about what it will mean for you if an abnormality is found in your baby.
During the first check-up, we will ask if you need prenatal screening information. If information is required, we will schedule a separate counseling meeting to tell you more about this. It can help you to read yourself in advance. This concerns the NIPT (Non-Invasive Prenatal Test), the 13 and 20-week ultrasound scan.
