Apply for prenatal check-up

Description

Statutory prenatal care includes a detailed consultation in which your doctor asks you about personal and family illnesses, your current condition and your life situation. As part of the physical examination, weight and blood pressure are also measured and a blood and urine sample is taken.

Following the initial examination, the doctor issues the maternity passport. In this, all data that are important for pregnancy and childbirth are noted.

After the initial examination, further checks initially take place at intervals of four weeks. In the last two months of pregnancy, the gap is shortened to about two weeks. The doctor checks the child's heart sounds and your weight at each appointment. In addition, the hemoglobin content of your blood is monitored. In the course of pregnancy, tests for infection with hepatitis B (HBs antigen) and screening for gestational diabetes (glucose tolerance test) also follow.

Other services include an ultrasound examination in the first, second and third trimesters of pregnancy and screening for gestational diabetes.

Contact your health insurance company.
