Intake en Counseling


We aim to have the intake interview take place around 8 weeks of pregnancy.
Het intake gesprek duurt ongeveer 45 minuten. Op basis van de van jou verkregen informatie over jouw medische voorgeschiedenis kunnen wij beoordelen of  wij eventueel extra onderzoeken moeten doen tijdens je zwangerschap.

Topics covered in this conversation:

  • Medication use
  • Have you ever had surgery?
  • What (serious) illnesses have you had
  • Congenital and / or hereditary disorders in your immediate family (e.g. Down syndrome, spina bifida, high blood pressure, diabetes)
  • Course of any previous pregnancy (s) (Did it go smoothly? Did it end in a miscarriage? Was there an abortion?)
  • Current pregnancy status (How far are you now? When was your last period and regular cycle? Did you take the pill? And when did you stop?)
  • Determining the gestational age and calculating the delivery date.
  • Whether you would like to receive information about tests for Down syndrome, Edward's syndrome and Patau syndrome and the 20-week ultrasound. You can already check out before the intake Deze link verzenden wij ook mee bij de bevestiging van de intake-afspraak. 


If you wish, a Counseling interview will take place around 10 weeks of pregnancy. We plan this meeting separately from the intake.
During this conversation it is discussed whether or not you want to have tests carried out into the health of your unborn child. 
You can choose from the Combination test, NIPT and SEO.
Questions about the studies you have can be discussed.

To prepare for this meeting, you can go through the information in advance. You can visit the following websites:

Combination test
The combination test consists of a blood test and a nuchal fold measurement via an ultrasound on your child. The combination test takes place at the UMC location AMC Amsterdam.

The NIPT is a blood test that looks in the maternal blood for pieces of hereditary material (DNA). The blood also contains a small amount of DNA from the placenta (placenta) of your child. This DNA is almost always the same as the DNA of your child itself. The laboratory can thus investigate whether there are indications of Down, Edwards or Patau syndrome. 

20 weeks Echo
The 20-week ultrasound checks whether there are indications of congenital physical abnormalities in your child. Furthermore, it is also checked whether there is sufficient amniotic fluid and whether your child is growing well. Of course, the sex of your child can be checked, but this is not the main goal of the 20-week ultrasound.
