First Trimester Care:

Viability Scan

Ultrasound scan best done before 10 weeks of pregnancy for:

  • Confirmation of pregnancy
  • Location of pregnancy within uterus

Dating Scan

Ultrasound scan done between 8 – 13 weeks of pregnancy and checks for:

  • Estimated due date (EDD)
  • Length of baby (crown-rump length)
  • Multiple pregnancies

OSCAR (One Stop Clinic for the Assessment of Risk for Foetal Anomalies)

This ultrasound scan is performed between 11 – 13 weeks of pregnancy. It assesses for:

  • Risk of foetal anomalies, especially Down’s Syndrome

Second Trimester Care:

Fetal Anomaly Screening

This is a detailed scan conducted around 18 – 21 weeks to examine the structural anatomy of the foetus. The scan checks for:

  • Major anomalies in the brain, face, spine, heart, lungs, stomach, bowel, kidneys, limbs, genitalia and umbilical cord
  • Minor variations of normal anatomy, commonly found in babies with chromosomal abnormalities
  • Growth of the foetus
  • Amount of amniotic fluid
  • Placental position
  • Uterine blood flow

Third Trimester Care:

Growth Scan

A growth scan is done between 32 – 36 weeks of pregnancy. This measures and observes:

  • Growth and well-being of baby
  • Length of baby’s head, abdomen and thigh bone
  • Amount of amniotic fluid around baby
  • Baby’s activity
  • Placental position

Doppler Ultrasound Scan

This scan may be done around 32 – 36 weeks, using a special ultrasound application to evaluate:

  • Foetal umbilical blood flow
  • Blood flow between major foetal vessels
  • Detect early signs of oxygen deprivation
  • Detection of foetal anemia

Post-Delivery Care

A postpartum check-up is usually scheduled six weeks after a vaginal delivery, or earlier after a caesarean section. It includes a review of the mother’s physical and mental well-being, a pelvic examination, wound inspection (if any) and any necessary laboratory tests (e.g. a repeat OGTT for women with gestational diabetes to assess return to normalcy).

During the visit, a health education component covering areas like breastfeeding, birth control and weight reduction would be included as well. This check-up is also an opportunity to review the pregnancy and birth experience, to discuss problems and assess for depression, to provide emotional support, to answer questions and to consider if any further referral is necessary for the new mother.
