Once you have found out that you are pregnant or suspect that you are pregnant, contact the secretary to book an appointment with our nurse/midwife. book an appointment with our nurse/midwife for your first pregnancy consultation.
The purpose of this consultation is to calculate your due date based on the first day of your last menstrual period and to complete a pregnancy record.
We talk about where you want to give birth and what tests you want to have as part of early prenatal diagnosis. In addition, you will have a number of blood tests and a follow-up appointment with your doctor approximately one week later.
With early prenatal diagnosis, it's important to know:
- That the calculation of the probability of chromosomal abnormalities and scanning for malformations is an offer and that you can opt in and out along the way.
- That you can choose to have a 1st trimester scan without being tested for the likelihood of chromosomal abnormality.
- That the vast majority of people get a normal response - but not everyone, which you should prepare for.
- That if the likelihood is increased, further investigations are offered for clarification.
- That you may face difficult dilemmas and difficult choices when dealing with abnormal/pathological findings in the fetus.
- That if all tests are normal, there's reason to feel more confident, but it's no guarantee of a child without illness or disability.
You can't check for everything - and you won't find everything you check for.

Vaccination of pregnant women against whooping cough in week 32 of pregnancy:
The Danish Health Authority recommends that pregnant women are vaccinated against whooping cough in connection with the 3rd routine pregnancy examination by their own doctor, which is scheduled around the full 32 weeks. Pregnant women with less than one week before expected delivery are not recommended to be vaccinated, as no preventive effect is expected for the newborn.
