Antenatal and Newborn Screening

You will be offered a range of screening tests during pregnancy and after your baby is born. It is a good idea to find out as much as you can about screening tests before you are offered them so that you can make informed decisions. Your midwife will be happy to discuss screening tests with you at the point of offer and/or before you have the screening performed.

Before you attend for booking please read through the Public Health England leaflet: Screening Tests for You and Your Baby

Phone friendly version: www.gov.uk/phe/pregnancy-newborn-screening/

The same leaflet is available in the following languages English, Bengali, Chinese, French, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Somali and Urdu from the gov.uk website:

The results of your screening tests may be posted to you directly or may be given verbally at your next appointment.
