Antenatal care is free of charge, and almost all women attend. The antenatal care is organized in defined areas, usually including all antenatal care units of the catchment area of a specified hospital. Each area has an antenatal care obstetrician and a midwife coordinator, who are responsible for evaluating and improving quality of care. Midwives are the main providers of antenatal care, with a referral system to obstetricians when needed. The first visit to antenatal care is usually around gestational week 9 and the national guidelines recommend a minimum of eight visits during pregnancy. Additionally, a visit eight to 12 weeks postpartum is offered. In Sweden, all pregnant women are routinely offered a second trimester ultrasound scan that generally is performed by specially trained midwives. There are no uniform national guidelines concerning trisomy testing; policies vary in different regions and have been changing continuously during the last decade and range from first trimester screening (FTS) for all women independent of age to only invasive testing for women above 35 years of age.
