Hi Ladies,

I am now just over 9 weeks pregnant. My next appointment is the nuchal translucency scan at 12 weeks. I was wondering if any of you have done the non-invasive prenatal testing such as the Nifty, Harmony or Serenity test in Dubai which is usually done around the same time? And if so where did you go and how much did it cost? Would you recommend it or is it a waste of money?

Thank you

Hi, I got offered the NIPT test when I went to confirm my pregnancy... this was at Mediclinic at the Dubai Mall and they quoted AED3000. I thought about it and in the end decided not to do it, I have since had my 12 week NT scan and this was fine. Good luck in deciding...it really is a personal preference and there are many factors which might sway you one way or another. Also if you are desperate to find out the gender they can tell you for sure if you do this test... although when I went for my 12 week scan they were able to tell me then, although only 80% sure.

I've done it at the genesis clinic. It's very expensive no matter where you do it, 3000 AED and more. It's done from 11 weeks I think and gives you very high accuracy on risks, but still it's only a risk assessment - it cannot tell you 100%. Only you can decide if it's worth it. For me it was because I'm a huge worrier and couldn't stand the idea of a test that was available and I didn't do it, but if you have low risk after the NT scan then you might not worry.

Oh and congrats on your pregnancy!

Hi,

I was also in the same confusion to do or not to do NIPT. But my lab quoted me AED 2500 only. but still i haven't decided to do. Looking for a sample report so that i will get a better idea about it.

Hi,

Oh yeah! I too have done this nipt-harmony test. Because i was so afraid that my baby may have some genetic problems as in my family my grand parent is having some genetic disorders. So i took harmony test. Its really simple, nothing to worry. I have done this from a Laboratory named freiburg which is at Dubai. They were so caring ,the facilities and all was highly qualified and sophisticated. When i reach there, i didnt get a feeling of testing and i was so relaxed. We can ask them about all the procedures and they were really helpful. And by God's Grace my baby was healthy and didn't had any such problems. In my case I didnt found it as a waste of time or money. I became happy and my fear was gone . If you need you can refer sample report here http://www.fml-dubai.com/nipt-test-dubai/
