Why have I been referred to FMU

The Fetal Medicine Unit is a part of the maternity services at Leeds. We see women when there is a complication which might affect their baby. There are lots of different reasons for referral to the FMU including:

  • A problem identified on a routine screening scan
  • A high risk screening test e.g. for Down’s Syndrome
  • A history of problems affecting existing children or previous pregnancies
  • Certain problems in the parents of the baby
