Pregma is here to help support you through antenatal screenings, which are used to find out if the baby has a chance of having a health problem before birth. This allows the mother to make safe decisions about their baby’s health and receive effective treatment to keep them safe and healthy.
We offer a number of tests which include non-invasive prenatal tests (NIPT) and the harmony test to help ease fears or anxieties for your baby’s future.
At Pregma, we believe in achieving the best possible pregnancy and birth for you. We have a fantastic team of screening technicians who are ready to help and expertly guide you through your pregnancy.

The tests screen for a number of abnormalities, including the three most common Trisomy conditions: Down’s Syndrome, Patau’s Syndrome and Edward’s Syndrome (Trisomy 21, 18 and 13). Sex chromosome anomalies including Turner and Klinefelter syndrome can also be checked during this process.
The tests are a non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) and will be offered through either a blood test or an ultrasound scan or both. The screening tests can be offered as early from 10 weeks all the way to 21 weeks. If your results come back as high risk, we can accommodate you to ensure that you will have a 100% diagnosis.
The non-invasive tests are completely safe but are not entirely accurate, however it is essential that you have had an ultrasound scan to check your baby’s gestation and whether you are having twins or triplets.
