Modern and complex attitude to pregnancy and birth. The tests and examinations which are a part of the prenatal clinic visit are the following: urinal test, evaluation of the body mass increase in the pregnant woman, blood pressure measuring, palpatory cervix examination and ultrasound examination of the foetus.

In the prenatal care, the ultrasound represents an irreplaceable examination method not only for the examination of a fetus, but also for the examination of a pregnant woman. The prenatal examinations are carried out during the 1st trimester in the 11th week + 3d-13+6 of the gravidity age, then in the 2nd trimester – with the fetus age of 19–22 weeks, and around the 30th week of the gravidity age. It is naturally possible to carry out the examination anytime in case of a need.

With regard to individual examinations:

  • In the 1st trimester of the gravidity, specifically at 11+3+13+6 of the fetus age, it is possible to examine the fetus in detail, as well as the fetal ovum, uterus, and the uterine area. It is usually carried out trans-abdominally. The biggest contribution is the measuring of the so-called nuchal translucence (NT). The NT is a sign, which – in combination with suitable biochemical examinations – may warn about a risk of certain genetic or anatomic congenital defects.
  • In April 2013 we acquired the first-trimester screening certificate, based on which we provide a complete first trimester screening to detect fetal congenital malformations and chromosomal aberrations.
    Modernization of our examination procedures enabled us to introduce better diagnosis of congenital malformations in human fetuses – the so-called first-trimester screening. Certification is the most important guarantee of quality examination and minimizes the risk of inaccurate results.
  • In the 2nd trimester of the gravidity, specifically between the 19th and the 20th week, we carry out a specialized examination of the fetus aimed at detecting and ruling out congenital defects of the fetus. This is also a suitable period for a detailed examination of the fetus heart.
  • In the 3rd trimester of the gravidity, around the 30th week, we aim at the position of the fetus in the uterus, and the placenta function.
