You are pregnant. You can be tested to see if your unborn baby has a disorder or a physical abnormality. This is called prenatal screening onderzoek (onderzoek ).
There are two types of screening tests:
- Screening for Down syndrome, Edwards' syndrome and Patau’s syndrome: the NIPT niet-invasieve prenatale test (niet-invasieve prenatale test ).
- Screening for physical abnormalities: the 13- week scan and the 20-week scan.
It’s entirely up to you to decide whether or not you want to take these screening tests. This document contains further details about screening for Down syndrome, Edwards’ syndrome and Patau’s syndrome.
There is also a brochure about the 13-week scan and the 20-week scan.
