You can register immediately when you know you are pregnant. Then we have enough time to schedule the first appointment.
Prior to the appointment you will receive a questionnaire from us by email. We would like you to send this questionnaires back to us before the interview. During the appointment(s) with us at the practice, we discuss the questionnaire that you have completed and we discuss prenatal screening. In addition, you can of course ask questions and (if desired) we make an ultrasound.
You can prepare for this appointment by reading the information on the website www.onderzoekvanmijnongeborenkind.nl and fill in the “Bewust kiezen’ questions on this website. Please check the information leaflet on our website: at Prenatal Screening (on the right) you will find the English leaflet. It is important to read the information about prenatal screening carefully before you come to your first appointment.
Many pregnant women would like to have an early ultrasound (vitality ultrasound). Our assistants will ask you if you want an early ultrasound. If there is no indication, this early (internal) ultrasound will not be covered by your insurance. If there is no indication for the ultrasound, the cost of this ultrasound will be € 40,02.
If the early ultrasound is desired, we will schedule this around 8 weeks. This appointment takes place with the midwife or ultrasound technician. If you do not have an early ultrasound, the intake and the term ultrasound will be scheduled around 10-12 weeks. The term ultrasound is always covered by your insurance.
We generally schedule the first appointments at the end of the morning or in the afternoon.
The next appointment will take place when you are 14-16 weeks.
