At Echo Amsterdam we have a branch of the SHO laboratory for all the blood analysis needed during pregnancy. SHO was founded in 2000 and has various branches throughout the Netherlands. The laboratory is open during weekdays and on saturday. If needed someone can visit you at home to take a blood sample. This can be very convenient in the first week after your delivery.

After taking the blood, it will be transported to SHO’s modern laboratory in Velp. A team of certified and qualified analysts will do the analysis. When the results are available they will be sent to your midwife, on the same day if needed. Your midwife will inform you about these results.


Beste cliënt,

Vanaf heden mag er bij naast de zwangere maximaal 1 persoon meekomen naar de echo. Neem dus geen kinderen mee! Wij vragen jullie om niet te vroeg te komen zodat er niet teveel mensen tegelijk in de wachtkamer zitten. Ook mogen wij weer echo's op verzoek inplannen.

Bij klachten als hoesten, niezen, koorts en neusverkoudheid vragen wij je om je afspraak telefonisch te verzetten. Een partner met klachten mag niet mee naar binnen.

Alvast bedankt voor jullie medewerking.
met vriendelijke groet,
medewerkers van Echo Amsterdam


Dear cliënt,

From now on you are allowed to bring maximum one extra person besides yourself to your scan. You are not allowed to bring your children.

We can also plan in your ultrasound upon request.

Please don't arrive too early to prevent too many people in the waiting room at the same time.
When you or your partner are coughing, sneezing or having a fever, we ask you to reschedule your appointment by telephone.

Thanks for your coöperation,
best regards,
the team of Echo Amsterdam
