In general, you can contact us for your first appointment as soon as you’re pregnant. We’ll schedule an appointment depending on the duration of the pregnancy – this will take place between the eighth and tenth week of pregnancy. After booking the appointment we will send you a folder with information by mail.
Before booking your first appointment you can consider the following:
- Do any hereditary diseases or congenital abnormalities occur within the immediate family?
- Have you had any childhood ailments such as chickenpox, fifth disease or rubella?
- Do you want information about possibilities for prenatal testing on birth defects?
Prior to the prenatal test we will discuss with you whether there’s an increased risk for your baby and what possibilities there are for further investigation and the consequences. It’s a voluntary choice whether you want to have prenatal testing. However, the exams should be performed between 8 to 15 weeks of pregnancy, so it is necessary to make an appointment timely.
