As soon as a woman thinks she is pregnant, she should visit a gynaecologist for urine tests and confirmation of pregnancy.
In Italy pregnant women may be entitled to the following examinations free of charge:
It is highly recommended that women over the age of 35 have an amniocentesis. All the medical examinations linked to pregnancy, done before, during or after the birth, are free of charge.
Before the pregnancy, it is also advisable for the father to have a general medical examination and run blood tests (not free of charge).
