Dr Ferguson & her team of health professionals have performed many hundreds of Harmony tests across our Scottish Clinics. ABC4D was the first babyscan clinic in Scotland to offer the Harmony Prenatal Test for Down's Syndrome giving parents an alternative and safer option to amniocentesis. The Harmony Test is a simple blood test which is 99% accurate and can give results in 7 working days.
The Harmony non-invasive blood test can be taken from the mother at any time from 10 weeks of pregnancy. The DNA in the mothers blood sample is analysed and identifies more than 99% of fetuses with Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), 98% of fetuses with Trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome), 80% of fetuses with trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome) and 96% of fetuses with Turners syndrome. Your appointment will be performed by one of our fully qualified healthcare professionals. After the blood samples are taken the results are usually available within 7 working days*.

ABC4D offer the Harmony test to all pregnant women, anybody who would like extra reassurance about their pregnancy is welcome to come to one of our clinics for a test. The test is not aimed at over 35’s, although the risk of Down’s syndrome does increase with maternal age, most cases of Down’s syndrome occur in women under 35.
Those who are anxious about having a baby with a chromosomal abnormality such as Down’s syndrome, Edwards syndrome or Patau’s syndrome, or who have previously had pregnancies with chromosomal abnormalities often opt for the test. Also any pregnancies who are at risk of miscarriage should they have CVS or amniocentesis may consider a Harmony Test.
