Why have I been referred to FMU?
The Fetal Medicine Unit is a part of the maternity services at Leeds. We see patients 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 chance screening test for the most common genetic syndromes
- A history of problems affecting existing children or previous pregnancies
- Certain problems in the parents of the baby
