Pregnancy – screening tests and checks

During pregnancy, you will be offered screening tests to check that you and your baby are healthy. Screening tests can provide you with information about your baby’s growth and development and how your body is coping with the physical changes and demands of pregnancy. They can also tell you whether you or your baby are more likely to have a medical condition.

These screening tests are your choice. Your midwife (or specialist doctor) will give you information and support to help you to decide whether to have screening or not.
