Questions or concerns before the first consultation
Have you already registered with us but have not yet had your first consultation? You may have questions or concerns, perhaps because you are experiencing spotting. If you have any questions, you can always contact our clinical assistants during working hours. If you have more serious concerns, call us on the emergency number.
The first ultrasound scan we make is the term ultrasound. It will help us to determine how far your pregnancy has progressed. This could be useful if your periods were irregular. During the first consultation, an appointment will be made for this term ultrasound. If you would prefer an early ultrasound before 10 weeks, called a vitality ultrasound, that is possible too. Just ask us to arrange it for you.
During the intake interview, we will also discuss the option of conducting a screening test. This is a test that measures the risk of having a child with a chromosomal aberration, such as Down Syndrome. We will discuss this with you in depth, enabling you to make a well-considered choice. The tests that are part of this screening are the combination test, NIPT and SEO. You can find information about this on the RIVM website, download leaflets and find a decision aid.
