My doctor asked my sister to take test for Down's Syndrome while she was pregnant, we were so scared of anything invasive. The Babyshield non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) only helped. Today my nephew is healthy because we continued the pregnancy and becoz this test gave us 98% accurate result, without harming the baby nor mother.

thank you so much for sharing, I have under gone NT scan during my pregnancy, reports were all ok, but after delivery we got to know my baby suffering from congenital heart disease , he is having hole in his heart, really it's heartbreaking for me n my husband since we lost our first baby due to some other reason. we are consulting heart specialist from Narayana Hrudayalya, Bangalore , doctor said nothing to worry everything will be ok. now we are relaxed n my little prince doing well. God bless him with lots of love n health.
