Our Gender scan is designed to check your baby’s heartbeat and movement and, excitingly, provide a professional opinion on the gender. Whether you choose to find out immediately or wait for the big reveal, our sonographers are on hand to help. We will also provide an amazing sneak peak of your baby in 4D imaging with a printed image if possible. This does not replace our Premium 4D Bonding & Wellbeing scan.
Sometimes babies are in unfavourable positions to carry out the necessary checks for gender, this means that we cannot guarantee the gender check will be carried out on the day you have booked. In these circumstances we will offer you to return at a later stage/date for a rescan. Although we recommend waiting until 18 weeks to confirm your gender, we can carry this out from 16 weeks. Measurements are taken during your scan to confirm gestational age, if we find that you are not 16 weeks we will not be able to carry out the gender check.
As we allow a full 20 minutes appointment this provides you with opportunity to ask any questions you may have and allows us to support you and provide you with the most accurate advice during the scan.
We recommend that you attend all scans with a relatively full bladder as this helps give us the best view of your baby.
A qualified Sonographer will complete your scan. Our Sonographers are fully qualified and registered medical professionals with lots of ultrasound experience. Our Sonographers are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and follow the British Medical Ultrasound Society protocols and guidance.
As the primary aim of this scan is to provide a professional opinion on the sex of your baby, if a 4D sneak peak is not available you will not be offered a rescan.
If, at any stage, we notice anything unusual during your scan we will explain our findings based on the visual observation at that time. We will advise you on what to do next and refer you to you midwife, GP or early pregnancy unit, we have the contact information and details to provide to you in the clinic.
