Profile of Pregnant woman
For pregnancy planning women, preventive examinations are the best way to exclude pregnancy contraindications and to preserve the fetus in the early stages of pregnancy. Possible health problems identifying allows you to start treatment and take care of the child's health immediately. On the other hand, in case of pregnant women, the detection of any abnormalities in the tests requires immediate doctor consultation and further diagnostics.
During pregnancy, regular basic blood tests (for example, for anemia, elevated glucose level) and urine tests (for protein or glucose, for urinary tract infections) are necessary.
Determination of the blood group is useful for assessing the risk of serological conflict between the fetus and the mother, as well as in case of a possible blood transfusion. It is also necessary to donate blood for the presence of antibodies to syphilis and the HIV virus, since these diseases can be transmitted from mother to child through the placenta during illness. Hepatitis B antigen test is also very important.
All this can prevent situations when the development of the fetus is stopped or disturbed, especially during such sensitive periods as the first and second trimester of pregnancy.
The aim of the study
Before pregnancy, it is very important to check the general condition of a woman's body, assess nutrition or the diseases that increase cardiovascular risk. It is equally important to rule out active or latent infections, especially those that can cause early miscarriage or create a risk of congenital anomalies in the fetus, for example, the toxoplasmosis virus increases the risk of developing defects of the nervous system of the child.
