"I never quite appreciated how important or valuable post birth care (breastfeeding in particular from my perspective!) would be when I was looking for a private midwife." - Helen

Sage Femme provide antenatal screening services in the comfort of your own home and at a time of your choosing.

Our screening services can be provided with or without an antenatal check-up.

Antenatal screening

We can offer the full range of antenatal blood tests, including tests that are not routinely provided within the NHS.

We can also arrange referrals for private ultrasound scans for dating, anomalies, growth and positioning.

The Harmony test is more accurate than traditional Down syndrome blood tests and much less likely to give a false-positive* result.

This in turn leads to a reduction in the need for follow up tests such as chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or amniocentesis and therefore eliminates the risks of miscarriage associated with these invasive procedures.

Harmony also tests for two other genetic conditions, Edward and Patau syndrome.

In addition, with Harmony you have the option to evaluate X and Y sex chromosomes and determine the gender of your baby, this is helpful for those who have had a previous sex chromosome abnormality such as Turners syndrome.

* A false positive is a test result that falsly indicates that a given condition is present when it is in fact not.

† The Amniocentesis and CVS test are usually only offered when there is a significant chance that your baby will develop a serious condition or abnormality. This is because the procedure is invasive and has a small associated risk of miscarriage.
