    I never had it done, but know of someone who did because of their history, they said it was worth every penny

    How far along is the pregnancy? Harmony is incredibly expensive. I would suggest having the standard NHS screening. If the results show a high risk of specific syndromes then I would take the harmony test.

    She is 8 weeks, but I want a definite yes or no, we could have the odds of 1/100 but could still be that one

    If you want that definite yes or no, then it may be worth your while, I know they check for a variety of things with that test and it's more in depth than the standard nhs one. Other than that I don't know a great deal about it apart from you will get a yes or no

    I've had the harmony test done. It doesn't give you a definite yes or no answer ...... it gives a risk factor, the risk factor is more accurate than the NHS screening risk factor but if you want a definite yes or no answer the only way to get that is by having a cvs or amnio xx

    Yes I'm sure, I've had it done. My risk was <1 in 10000 chance of a chromosome problem. I could still be that 1

    I had the standard NHS tests and found to have a 1 in 49 risk of downs.

    We were lucky to have the Harmony test, done in London on the NHS and our risk factor changed to 1 in 1,000000.

    My beautiful baby boy was born 2 weeks ago and is perfect :) xx
