At your first prenatal visit the following lab tests are usually performed: urine analysis and/or culture, Pap smear, cultures for gonorrhea and chlamydia, blood typing and Rh antibody screening, a complete blood count, rubella (German measles) antibody, hepatitis B antigen, syphilis screen (required by New York State) and HIV screen (required by New York State on either mother while pregnant or on newborn before release from hospital).

Other tests that may be indicated include: Parvovirus (Fifth disease) screen, Toxoplasmosis screen if cats are in the household, Lyme disease screen and Nuchal Translucency screen for Down's Syndrome. At subsequent visits, a urine dip is usually done to check for signs of an infection, excess protein or excess sugar.
