Prenatal Diagnosis Clinic

The prenatal diagnosis clinic (PNDC) provides pregnancy screening, diagnostic testing, intrauterine therapies, and patient support and counselling. We provide a standard of excellence in the field of prenatal diagnosis and fetal medicine for patients from our own catchment area as well as for women referred to the clinic from other centres around the country. Our ultrasound scans are performed to the highest international standards and women are supported by informative and sensitive counselling services. Women and their partners receive personalised care by a team of specialist doctors and midwives.

The non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) is a new screening test that helps us to identify if your baby is likely to have a chromosomal condition, for example, Down syndrome, (Trisomy 21), Edward syndrome (Trisomy 18) or Patau syndrome (Trisomy 13).  The blood test can be performed from 10 weeks of pregnancy onwards.

These tests are not carried out routinely on all pregnant women. It is an ‘opt-in’ service. Costs may apply for these screening tests. Please contact the department for further information.
