DR Nicholoa &amp  Nuchal Scan

Hi ladies

I have posted this in the pregnancy forum but thought you ladies may have had some experience with this having had babies...

Has anyone had any experience with the Nuchal Scan performed by Professor Nicholoa at morning side. My gynae did a scan at 11w3 days and measured the skin at the back of the neck and it was larger than normal, then did the bloods and my risk came back as 1:200, high risk for downs... a friend told me about this dr Nicholoa and said the measure everything down to the bone size etc. Im just wondering if its a duplication of what my gynae did, because we have to pay cash for this procedure and its R1200. other wise i have to wait two weeks for an amnio and then another 2 weeks for results. a whole month before i find out if my baby is fine.

Please help!
