Every woman has the right to numerous ultrasounds during her pregnancy. These are the dating ultrasound and the 20 weeks screening ultrasound at approximately 20 weeks. In addition, some women will receive an extra ultrasound at the indication of the midwife, if she for example doubts the growth or placement of the child. All these ultrasounds are covered by Insurance.
Furthermore there is another ultrasound that is a part of the prenatal screening, the first trimester combined screening. This is offered to every pregnant woman, but is not covered by your insurance. You are free in your choice, the midwife will counsel you about this combination test and answer all your questions.
At Femme-Amsterdam you receive an ultrasound at each consultation with the midwife. We offer this because we know from experience that parents enjoy following their child’s development. Below you will find a description about the standard medical ultrasound’s, followed by the ultrasound’s offered at Femme-Amsterdam.
