Antenatal Blood Check

During different stages of pregnancy, pregnant women need to undergo multiple prenatal checkups to diagnose different conditions and ensure the health of both the mother and the fetus. Blood tests are generally performed in the early stages of pregnancy.

The items include:

  • Blood grouping and Rh factor
  • Hemoglobin and mean cell volume
  • Rubella antibody
  • Hepatitis B antigen
  • Syphilis antibody
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibody
  • Through the analysis of Cell-free-fetal DNA in the mother's blood (NIPT), it is also possible to screen for chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus after 10 weeks of pregnancy.

The Rh factor is an antigen-presenting on red blood cells. Individuals who have this antigen are classified as Rh-positive, while those who lack it are classified as Rh-negative.

If an Rh-negative woman is carrying an Rh-positive fetus, the incompatibility of the Rh factor can result in fetal hemolytic anemia, hydrops fetalis, and even fetal demise. In such cases, the pregnant woman should undergo regular blood tests to assess whether the fetus is affected by these conditions.

Premarital / Pre-pregnancy Checkup includes Blood group and Rhesus status check-up. It is recommended for couples to undergo pre-pregnancy check-ups if they plan to conceive a child, so to ensure that their physical conditions are suitable for pregnancy and safeguard the health of the next generation.
