Screening tests for you and your baby

Screening test are used to find people at a higher risk of a health problem. This means that they can get earlier, potentially more effective, treatment or make informed decisions about their health.

Within this section we want to provide you with information on the screening tests that you and your baby will be offered. If you have seen your midwife she will have provided you with the booklet ‘Screening Tests for you and your baby’ if you haven’t got a copy of this book you can always view it on the link below;

To help you understand the timeframes involved in screening and when you are likely to have the tests, Public Health England have devised a ‘timeline’
