Antenatal profile: a group of laboratory tests done during pregnancy to ensure the well being of the mother and baby. These include:
1. Screening for anemia (hemoglobin test)
2. Screening for blood group incompatibility
3. Screening for infectious diseases which can be transmitted to the child (HIV, hepatitis B, syphilis)
4. Testing urine for “silent” urinary tract infection.
5. Blood sugar testing to screen for diabetes in pregnancy.
Should there be a problem in any one of them, appropriate action can be taken.
It is important that every expectant lady undergoes these tests. Visit us at Polo Centre or Baraka Plaza along Kenyatta Avenue, Nakuru to have the tests done or call 0711443673 for sample collection from the convenience of your office / home.
