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, 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/

Hi,ladies . I did NIPT and i ll give My best to transfer My knowledge. I just say I did it in lab where my doctor recommended it,but now I would never go again there. I did a lot of research and I must say there is one German clinic /lab which is having doctor there on the spot while you are doing your test. Majority is like mine companies which are sending you in lab ti the the test. The name to avoid is WASP ,they are so unprofessional, they website is not working, agent named BUSHRA sent me to lab in al Barsha but they don’t even give you receipt,you must pay in cash and once she told me she will email me receipt, after 5 days of chasing her she sent me photo of paper receipt and as I explained to her I can’t do anything with it. Also I don’t like the fact here there are no contacts between hospital/lab/agents and us as customers as who is guaranteeing me that blood will arrive not contaminated or in case test will be jeopardized who will pay extra cost as I checked in Europe all my fiends who did had contract with clinic/agents. Also what I didn’t like about WASP she wasn’t able to give me more informations and she was very rude with !!! In our conversation. Only that German clinic I think was the one from last post here they have some kind of contract. But they are sending samples in Barcelona. Pretty much all others told me UK,,USA or China. So I m just hoping that with stem cells will be better and more professional. As for my friend advice I waited 12-13 week as concentration of blood is stronger and result can be more accurate. Hope this helps. Cost is from 2000-3000aed depends whom are you doing and how many days you are willing to wait. Where ever you are going ask them on which days are they transporting samples so you can schedule your visit accordingly.
