Pregnancy experience and prenatal screening
To find out more about the subjective state of mind of pregnant women, their attitude and their desire for information and to be better able to tailor the new media, materials and in-service training opportunities to them, the BZgA commissioned a survey of pregnant women. The respondent provided information about various aspects of their pregnancy experience, their experiences with pre-natal screening and their attitudes and expectations.
Pamphlet “prenatal screening”
The BZgA created the pamphlet “prenatal screening” to provide pregnant women with a brief informative overview of the diagnostic procedures found in prenatal screening.
Inter-professional quality circles in prenatal screening
The aim of the pilot project “Inter-Professional Quality Circles in Prenatal Screening” conducted by the Bundeszentrale für gesundheitliche Aufklärung (BZgA) was to promote collaboration between the professions working in advising pregnant women (and their partners). These are primarily physicians as well as experts providing psychosocial counselling. The goal: creating a holistic, low-threshold care and support service for pregnant women and their partners in the area of prenatal screening.
