Can Harmony/NIPT screening be performed in Twin Pregnancies?

27th June 2022

The answer is Yes!

 Ladies with a viable twin pregnancy can also have Harmony screening performed to assess for the risk of Downs, Edwards and Patau Syndromes,  with greater accuracy than standard screening tests. This applies to both natural conception and IVF pregnancies and can be performed from as early as 10 weeks gestation. 

Fetal gender can also be determined for twin pregnancies, with results being given as ‘ two girls ‘ or ‘ at least one boy’. ( It is not possible to determine if there are two boys as it only looks to see if the Y chromosome is present. )
