I take it that you mean pg related one's- If so here is a list from my antinatal notes.
Full blood count
ABO- blood group
sickle cell and/or thalassaemia - genetic blood disease
Rhesus blood group and antibodies
Rubella antibodies (German measles)
Blood test that measures the risk of Downs' syndrome.
Hi lfb, I had all those tests that have already been posted here and also they check your blood sugar (I am diabetic already so this is checked routinely for me but I know from my non diabetic friends they had theirs checked from time to time too)
There are some tests (like the triple test) that you can refuse so you would need to ask your midwife at the booking in appt which you can refuse if you want to. they should give you a load of info about what the tests are, how they are carried out, risks and consequences of positive/negative results etc.
As far as I know the tests for thalasseamia etc are only carried out if you have a family history of it.
Hope this is helpful for you
