Prenatal Screening

If you wish, you can have your unborn child examined for a number of abnormalities and conditions. This is called prenatal screening. You can choose between two different forms of prenatal screening:

  1. Screening for Down, Edwards and Pataus syndrome with the NIPT (non-invasive prenatal test). A blood test on mother. This will take place in the Flevo Hospital.
  2. A structural ultrasound examination at both 13 and/or 20 weeks. You will receive information as to whether there are indications of physical structural abnormalities in your unborn child.

We will be happy to inform you about all types of prenatal screening available during pregnancy. We will discuss this with you during the intake. Would you like more background information? Continue reading on (available in English).
