Good, but needed a bit of context.
By Hunkyo C. on 24. October 2018 for Antenatal Testing

Good lecture that covers the antenatal tests with appropriate detail. Would have liked to have the context of what weeks gestation these tests occur - 32 and 36-38 weeks gestation per article.

It's Fun to learn this way!
