Pregnancy and childbirth in Denmark
Contact your doctor
If you become pregnant, contact your GP – the doctor stated on your health card.
Your doctor will make the initial examinations and set up a maternity record that will accompany you throughout your pregnancy.
The maternity record will be completed at all consultations with your doctor, midwife/obstetric department and ultrasound department.
In connection with your first medical examination, your doctor will also discuss with you the proposed place of birth on the basis of a health assessment and the wishes of you and your partner.
Services available during pregnancy
The Danish Health Authority recommends the following basic services for a healthy woman with an uncomplicated pregnancy:
- 3 consultations with your GP
- 2 ultrasound examinations
- 4-7 midwife consultations
- Possible pregnancy visit by a health visitor
The individual process for the pregnant woman will naturally depend on her specific needs.
