London Pregnancy Clinic - genetic testing and counselling

Noninvasive investigation of baby’s genome

We take a holistic approach to fetal genetic health. First, we offer pre-test genetic counselling, explaining the pros and cons of various genetic screening tests.

Next, we use the most advanced NIPT and carrier screening tests to predict fetal genotype, which examines the baby’s genetic makeup. If genetic tests reveal any unusual or abnormal findings, we provide detailed counselling to explain the results and plan the next steps.

Finally, if there is any indication of a genetic syndrome, our fetal medicine experts perform ultrasound scans for fetal phenotype. These scans assess the baby’s physical characteristics to predict the severity of the condition.

Short genetic inquiry

Question to genetic counsellor

Sometimes you may have a quick question about prenatal genetics, such as the availability of specific tests or genetic lab brands. It’s important to get an answer from a specialist rather than searching on Google. Our genetic counsellors provide concise answers to these questions. If they cannot answer immediately, they will check their professional genetic sources and get back to you. Please note that this service does not include counselling before or after tests or reviewing your family history or genetic risk assessments. For these services, please book an appropriate counselling session.

15 min telephone consultation


London Pregnancy Clinic offers a wide range of advanced and effective genetic screening tests. The best time for carrier screening is before pregnancy; for NIPT, it is at 10 gestational weeks. Our tests cover various types of genetic conditions. We strongly recommend genetic counselling with our counsellors before choosing a test. They will guide you and help you select the best test for your needs and requirements.

Carrier Screening Tests

Screening for 787 monogenic conditions

BEACON 787 is one of the most advanced carrier screening tests, detecting a wide variety of severe autosomal recessive and X-linked genetic conditions. We strongly recommend genetic counselling before taking this test. If a genetic condition is found, post-test counselling is included in the price. We also recommend that both parents undergo simultaneous carrier screening testing. This ensures a comprehensive understanding of potential genetic risks.


State-of-the art fetal health screening

SMART Test NIPT is the most advanced NIPT and scan package in the world. It’s our signature test for parents wanting detailed knowledge about their baby’s health without invasive testing risks. We offer two genetic packages: SMART Test KNOVA, performed by a leading US lab (Fulgent), and SMART Test Genoma, performed by a top European lab (Eurofins). Genetic counselling before the SMART test is essential to understand its advantages and limitations. This ensures you make an informed decision about your baby’s health.

Basic NIPT

Chromosomal screening

NIPT is the gold standard for screening common chromosomal anomalies (like Down syndrome). We offer two basic NIPTs: PrenatalSafe UK3, performed by the UK-based lab Eurofins, and Panorama AI, done by the US lab Natera. Panorama AI includes an extended basic panel and provides additional screening for sex chromosome aneuploidies and 22q deletion. Genetic counselling before NIPT is advisable to understand its pros and cons. This helps you make an informed decision about your baby’s health.
