Belgium and the Netherlands are among the few countries in the world to offer non-invasive prenatal testing as a first-tier screening test to all pregnant women. An informed and autonomous decision is considered important when deciding to participate in prenatal screening for aneuploidy. Despite the similarities, counselling modalities and uptake rates between both countries differ. We assessed the differences in perspectives of pregnant women who opted for prenatal screening with NIPT.
