Your pregnancy scans and tests

You’ll be offered a free blood test if you sign up for the Maternity and Infant Scheme. Most hospitals will also offer you a dating scan.

You might have other scans or tests if your GP, midwife or obstetrician has identified that you or your baby is at risk of a particular health problem. This means that if treatment is needed, it can be started early.
