Non-invasive Prenatal
Testing (NIPT)


Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) can identify a pregnancy in which the baby is likely to have a chromosome condition. These conditions are uncommon, do not usually run in the family, and can happen in any pregnancy.
NIPT can be requested by your midwife from 10 weeks’ gestation and we recommend that you have an ultrasound to confirm your gestation, prior to taking your blood sample.


Collecting a mother’s blood sample for NIPT poses no threat to your baby.
Our NIPT routinely screens for these chromosome conditions:
1. Down syndrome (trisomy 21)
2. Edwards syndrome (trisomy 18)
3. Patau syndrome (trisomy 13)


If requested, NIPT can also screen for:
4. Turner syndrome
5. Klinefelter syndrome
6. Other sex chromosome anomalies (Triple X syndrome and XYY syndrome)

You also have the option to determine the sex of your baby.

  • Can I pay in instalments?
    Yes you can! Although you are welcome to pay in full, we are happy to accept instalments. We request a £2000 non refundable deposit when booking your care package. Then monthly payments up until 36 weeks. The full package must have been paid for before we are on call for your birth from 37 weeks.
  • Do you charge interest if I pay in instalments?
    No, we do not charge interest. You will pay the same whether paying in full or instalments.
  • What happens if I have a miscarriage?
    If you sadly experience a miscarriage after booking for our care you will only pay for the care you have received. We will refund full payment minus any appointments & blood tests you have received.
  • Can I change my care package after I have booked?
    Of course! We will always do our best to accommodate your wishes. If you would like to add extra care we will do our best to fit you in. At times this will not be possible as we must be available to clients who have booked for our birth packages already.
  • Are your Midwives experienced, regulated, trained & insured?
    Yes! I have over a decade of experience looking after clients throughout their pregnancy & birth journey. I am a fully registered member of our regulating body; the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC). I have appropriate Indemnity insurance for all of the care provided. My Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is designed to maintain & improve all of my Midwifery skills.
