I'm 36 with my 1st pregnancy and just had my booking in appointment at 9+1. I signed up to the full range of NHS tests but I've been reading about the NIPT/Harmony tests and we have decided it's a good idea. Can anybody recommend a private clinic in the North West please? (Could also travel to Leeds)

I've used baby bond in SW but I think they are nationwide,
Excellent treatment and results were back in a week.
£400 for the NIPT and scan.

That's great thank you, a google search brought up loads of results. Will give them a call now and see if they are local.

We had ours at the Catherine Suite at the Liverpool Women's hospital. Staff were fantastic and results came back 8 days later. I think it was £450. The midwife explained that the Women's chose the particular brand of NIPT they use (Illumina Verifi I think it's called?) because the company is happy to publish its results, so we found that reassuring. Hope you find the right one for you OP.

It was only a week ago so I'm still waiting for the results, but based on my experience so far, I would recommend it.

Oh, and it's DEFINITELY a good idea to get the test. My current biggest regret is that I didn't have these tests before the NHS screening. The heartache I have had over the past week has been unbearable, and it might turn out it was all for nothing.

Hi all, I just thought I would update, we settled on ultrasound direct in Oldham, we had the test last Thursday at 8pm and have had the results back today, all low risk.

It was £399 and all the staff were lovely. I would really recommend to anyone else in the area. Thank you all for your recommendations.
