Just wondering about any Irish experiences of this test? Am thinking of getting it done at the rcsi as it seems to include a scan. And the others don't? Am in my 40s and very very anxious about this whole pregnancy. Will be 8w on sat but have only just made a gp appt. feel if I start doing stuff it will disappear daft I know.
Have posted on craicnet too. Any experiences v welcome come calm me down
I got the Harmony done in 2014 in Holles St private and it was €800 (lovely )
Then I had it again in the Beacon in 2015 and it was €450. The Beacon also offered the Panorama for the same price. I went with the Harmony on the off-chance that it was a twin pregnancy (Panorama can only do singletons).
They all include a scan- they need to do this to date the pregnancy (and check its viable) before they take your bloods. Iirc you need to be 9 weeks for Panorama and 10 weeks for Harmony.
I just had the Harmony in Merrion Fetal Health and it was €495 I think. Less than the €800 I was quoted in 2014 last time I was pregnant. Had a scan, filled out some paperwork and blood test. Got the results very quickly which was great. Don't know anything re the Panorama.
