Antenatal testing and ultrasound examination

Every pregnant woman in the Netherlands is informed about tests that gives information about the risk that the baby has the Down’s, Edward’s or Patau’s syndrome. The costs and coverage by health care insurance depend on what test you might choose.

A second antenatal test that women can choose is the anomaly scan, an ultrasound scan around 20 weeks to check the baby for congenital defects. The anomaly scan is covered by the health care insurance
