If necessary, we can discuss further examinations with you.
The check-ups should be carried out every 4 weeks during normal pregnancy, and every 2 weeks in the last two months of pregnancy. In the event of deviations from the normal course of pregnancy, examinations may be necessary more frequently.
Exceeding the calculated date of birth will result in frequent check (every 2 days).
The "Pregnancy Passport" is given to every pregnant woman in Germany at the beginning of the pregnancy by your gynecologist or your midwife (at the latest after the 2nd check-up). It offers a quick and precise overview of all important data and results (findings) of your pregnancy.
The document is used to record the check-ups, provides information on the results of maternity screening tests, such as blood group, Rhesus factor, rubella titres as well as on further diagnostics (e.g. ultrasound, CTG).
The birth certificate and the course of the puerperium as well as the examination findings of the newborn are also documented in the pregnancy passport.
In the case of patients who have already had children, the Pregnancy Passport serves as a document for subsequent pregnancies and previous courses of birth. And remember, if you later have a question about your blood type, e.g. for an upcoming surgery, you can always present your pregnancy passport as a document.
In early pregnancy, we offer detailed advice on prenatal diagnosis.
