Pregnancy screening - Blood tests
Are you pregnant? Then the midwife or gynecologist will have some blood taken from you on your first visit. The laboratory will examine your blood for three infectious diseases: hepatitis B, syphilis and HIV humane immunodeficiency virus. The laboratory also determines the blood groups A, B, AB or O of the most commonly used classifications in blood groups, Rhesus D, Rhesus c and investigates whether you have antibodies against blood groups.
