    Default NIPT referral

    Hey everyone,

    Just wondering where we get the referral for the NIPT test. We aren't sure if it's the GP or the FS

    Thanks!

    I got my referral from my OB. I assume you can get a referral from a GP, the same way you would get a referral for NT screening

    Oh awesome thanks! I'm thinking we should get a referral soon because I think some places can book up a bit so might be good to get it well in advance!

    @rainbow road what was the cost at Genea? And where are they?

    There is an ultrasound place that does this test really close to us so I was considering booking with them just for location.

    We will just be going public so no private OB. Will have to get a referral from the GP.
    @rainbow road I didn't realise Genea was at Norwest as well! That's handy!
