Harmony prenatal genetic test now available!

We are pleased to announce the arrival of the Harmony prenatal test.

This ground breaking new method of screening for Down Syndrome (the Harmony Prenatal DNA Test) detects microscopic levels of fetal cells in the mother's blood to produce a 99% accurate detection rate and has been keenly anticipated by both medical staff and pregnant women alike.

Although the new genetic blood test does not replace traditional methods of diagnostic testing via a CVS or amniocentesis it is 100% safe and there is no risk of miscarriage or harm to the unborn baby.

Read more about the test here. For the safest, most accurate screening for Down Syndrome book your appointment now at the London Ultrasound Centre.

Recommended by The London Women’s Clinic

Patients undergoing IVF treatment at the highly regarded London Women's Clinic have their first pregnancy scan at 7 weeks gestation at the London Ultrasound Centre.

These precious pregnancies are entrusted to our highly skilled team of experts by the fertility experts directly opposite us on Harley Street.

IVF patients often exhibit higher risk factors than pregnancies that are naturually conceived, and so it is logical that only the very best in prenatal care is extended to the parents as part of their IVF package.

The message here is; if these special pregnancies are exclusively cared for by the London Ultrasopund Centre, shouldn't you be booking your private scans with us?
