During pregnancy, several tests are recommended to ensure the health and well-being of both the mother and the developing foetus.
Blood tests can help identify several conditions, such as anaemia, infections, and blood type.
Urine tests can detect urinary tract infections, protein in the urine, and sugar in the urine, which could indicate gestational diabetes.
An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the developing foetus.
Glucose screening is a test to check for gestational diabetes.
Group B strep is a type of bacteria that can be present in the vagina or rectum.
NIPT is a blood test that can screen for genetic disorders in the developing foetus.
It is essential to undergo these tests during pregnancy to ensure that both the mother and the baby are healthy.
