My experience with Harmony Prenatal testing started at their Gamma-Dynacare Medical Lab where I went to have my blood taken. It was a very unnerving experience; the clinic was dirty, disorganized and filled with people that were (self-proclaimed) drug addicts. My name was called immediately; otherwise, I would have turned around and walked out. The nurse on site was friendly and put me at ease. I live in Canada, and I had to pay $495 out of pocket for this test.
I received my results yesterday. While I was happy that the results came back low risk for trisomy 21, trisomy 18 and trisomy 13, the results for the sex of the baby came back "inconclusive." One of the reasons we were willing to pay the fee for this test was to have the opportunity to learn the baby's gender. There are FREE tests covered by OHIP that could have given us the same results regarding genetics defects.
Overall, I would say, do the tests covered by OHIP first. If those come back high risk and you're looking for a second opinion, you may want to seek out other tests. For me personally, the Harmony Prenatal Test was a total waste of time and money.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
