There is a small risk of fetal abnormality with every pregnancy. Unfortunately, this risk increases as the mother gets older. Prenatal screening is offered to all women to determine more accurately, the risk of having a baby with a chromosomal disorder such as Down’s Syndrome.
Screening tests for chromosomal disorders:
- First trimester screening at 11- 14 weeks of pregnancy
This includes a scan of the nuchal translucency or fluid filled space behind the fetal neck. A nasal bone assessment is also usually done as babies with Down Syndrome may have absence of the nasal bone. The scans may be combined with a blood test from the mother for hormone and biochemical markers for a more accurate risk assessment.
- Maternal serum screening at 15- 20 weeks of pregnancy
This involves a simple blood test from the mother which may be interpreted alone, or in combination with the First trimester screening scan for a more accurate risk assessment.
- Fetal Anomaly Screening Scan
At around 20 weeks of pregnancy, a fetal anomaly scan is usually performed to assess the baby’s growth, anatomy, placental position and cervical status. This scan can usually detect up to 90% of the major abnormalities.
If you suspect you are pregnant, it is better you confirm it early so that you can ascertain the date of the pregnancy. This can be done by urine pregnancy test or transvaginal ultrasound scan. The risk of miscarriage in each pregnancy is about 15%.
- The cause of vaginal bleeding in early pregnancy
- Threatened miscarriage
- Incomplete miscarriage
- Missed abortion
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Molar pregnancy
If you have vaginal bleeding at early pregnancy you need to see your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor will perform a vaginal examination to check the source of bleeding and whether cervical is open or closed. Your doctor will also perform trans-vaginal ultrasound scan to check the location of the gestational sac whether it is in the uterus or outside and whether it is viable or non viable pregnancy.

Routine check and tests during antenatal check up
- Weight & height
- Blood pressure
- Urine for protein and glucose
- Blood test for Hemoglobin, Blood group/Rhesus status, Hepatitis B antigen, VDRL, HIV testing
- Screening for Diabetes Mellitus for mothers with risk factors
From 24 weeks of pregnancy, patients are usually seen on a monthly basis up to 32 weeks, fortnightly up to 36 weeks, and finally weekly until delivery.
- Growth scans
These are usually performed after 24 weeks of pregnancy to ensure that your baby is growing well. They also evaluate the placental location and amniotic fluid volume. The use of colour Doppler ultrasound helps to assess the blood flow in the umbilical cord and other blood vessels in the baby. The results from such scans can help determine if the blood is circulating properly and if the baby is under stress.
- 3D and 4D scans
A 3D scan provides a life-like image of your baby while a 4D scan is a real-time moving image of the baby. These scans may take around 30 minutes or longer depending on your baby’s position and movement. They may help to provide reassurance that baby is growing well, but are not meant to replace the screening scans which are advised in the second trimester.
- Fetal Cardio- Tocography (CTG)
This is a recording of the fetal heart rate. It is performed to determine the baby’s well being. It also helps to assess for the presence of uterine contractions.
