With ultrasound, you can get reliable information about the fetus and can detect complications in pregnancy. For ultrasound, the midwife uses an ultrasound camera with gel in the area to be examined. The audio signals are processed and displayed as live images on the screen. The examination is not painful.
NIPT is a blood sample in the mother's arm that analyzes the fetus' DNA and examines whether the fetus has chromosomal abnormalities. The sample can be taken from week 10 and is always done in combination with an ultrasound to check how far into the mother has come in the pregnancy. Our midwives are also available for advice if you wish before booking an appointment for NIPT.

When you discover that you are pregnant, a whole new world opens up. Brand new thoughts and issues arise, and you may have many questions about lifestyle, the fetus in the womb and the way forward.
Our midwives can guide you and want to make you safe during pregnancy!

Ultrasound is sound waves that are sent into the body from a sound head. The sound waves have such a high frequency that they are not audible to the human ear. When the sound waves hit the body tissue, an echo occurs. The echo causes the sound waves to return to the sound head. Different tissues reflect the audio signals differently. The audio signals are processed and displayed as live images on the screen.
Ultrasound provides reliable information about the fetus and can detect complications in pregnancy.Read more about ultrasound, and how we can help
