Infectious Diseases Screening Tests in Late Bookers, Obstetrics

exp date isn't null, but text field is


Late bookers are women who present for the first time on or after 24 weeks pregnancy. This is the stage at which the baby is potentially viable if early labour occurred.

The results of the infectious disease screening tests could affect the management at or after delivery, therefore all infectious diseases screening test results for a woman should be known prior to delivery and certainly before discharge.
