"Very well organised, modern large rooms with excellent view of screens. All staff were friendly and welcoming. The sonographer was able to tell the gender of our baby within minutes then proceeded to share the images of our baby with us. We also purchased a cannon to launch to find out the baby’s gender which the team kept secret for us. Highly recommended."

Detailed Description:

The GenderGrowth&Wellbeing™ scan can be conducted between 16 and 32 weeks gestation (after your initial NHS appointment). This reassurance scan focuses on checking the development and wellbeing of your unborn baby. This is also a great choice of ultrasound for gender confirmation – we can tell you the sex right away, or keep it a secret to be revealed at a later date.

During the scan, your fully-qualified obstetric sonographer will carry out growth measurements and weight calculations, establish placenta position and fluid volume, provide an audible heartbeat trace, and identify the position of your baby. All of this will be documented in the form of a Digital Foetal Assessment Report, providing valuable information for you to share with your midwife.

Your scan will be conducted using an abdominal ultrasound probe (external on the abdomen), and it is important to recognise that imagery obtained is derived from the reflection of sound waves passing through your abdomen creating the visual image. The level of diagnostic evaluation and visibility achievable can differ greatly between clients – especially in cases of a high BMI, which can result in poor image resolution.

Complimentary gender evaluation is included in this scan package. However, there are two conditions: at minimum, you must be at 16 weeks gestation on the day of your scan (as defined by your NHS dating scan) and gender determination is subject to your baby presenting in a conducive position to confirm sex.

Whether you’re booking an ultrasound for gender confirmation or for reassurance, we will do everything we can to ensure that your scan experience is a positive and memorable part of your pregnancy journey.

Secret Gender Option:

If you would prefer to find out your baby’s gender at a later time– for example, at a gender reveal party with family and friends – please make sure you select ‘Secret Gender Reveal Option’ when booking. When this option is selected, we will conduct the first part of your scan (the part where we check whether you’re having a boy or a girl) with the viewing screens turned off to avoid spoiling the surprise.

The viewing screens will then be turned back on for the remaining duration of your scan. Gender depiction will be documented on the foetal assessment report and an image displaying gender will be supplied on photocloud™. A complimentary Gender Reveal Scratch Card will be provided for the purpose of the secret reveal.

Please note

You must be a minimum of 16 weeks gestation as determined by your NHS dating scan for a gender evaluation to be conducted. An ultrasound scan cannot guarantee the sex of your baby with 100% accuracy. However, all scans are performed by qualified and highly experienced obstetric ultrasound sonographers who provide their professional opinion based on the diagnostic imagery obtained.
Digital Foetal Assessment Report
This ultrasound scan package includes a Digital Foetal Assessment Report that confirms:
  • HC, AC & FL Measurements
  • Gestation Age
  • Audible Heartbeat
  • Observed Movement
  • Placental Site
  • Amniotic Fluid Volume
  • Position of Baby
Gender evaluation is also included in this report (subject to baby's position and visibility).
Scan Time & Baby’s Safety
Your GenderGrowth&Wellbeing™ scan will last for approximately 5-7 minutes. As an ethical and regulated provider we comply with the British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS) guidelines, only scanning for as long as it necessitates to achieve the required diagnostic evaluation. Whilst we appreciate longer scan times promoted by other scan companies may seem appealing, the safety and wellbeing of your baby is paramount and should not be compromised.
Referral Procedure to NHS
In the event we identify matters of concern and it is considered a further detailed diagnostic assessment is required, a referral to your NHS GP/Midwife will be provided in accordance with our approved procedures. Referrals to NHS will only be provided when there is justified concern.
Complimentary Gender Evaluation
This is subject to your unborn baby's gestation age and their position at the time of the scan. Should you wish the gender element of your scan to be conducted in a secret format, please ensure you select the ‘Secret’ Book Now option.
Re-Scan Guarantee
If, on the day of your private gender scan, your baby is in a position that makes gender determination difficult to achieve, our Sonographer will recommend that you take a short walk to encourage movement. In the unlikely event that this does not work, we will offer you one complimentary re-scan date (terms and conditions apply).
Multiple Pregnancy Surcharge
A multiple pregnancy will require further scan time in order to conduct the detailed assessment of multiple foetus; as such we charge an additional £50 per foetus to account for the extended appointment time allocated.
Sonographers & Regulation
All ultrasound scans are performed by qualified and experienced obstetric Sonographers registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC).
Guest Policy
Due to the sensitive nature of baby scans and potential unexpected findings, we strongly encourage you to consider the purpose of your chosen scan and the appropriate nature of guests in attendance in particular children attending the examination room. We have re-designed our clinic to provide a purpose built private viewing room to accommodate additional guests from which we can appropriately control what is displayed and observed. Our guest policy now permits up to four guests to accompany you into the examination room including ‘where appropriate’ closely supervised children; with a further five additional guests including children (supervised under the age of 16 years) permitted into the private viewing room where they can view your scan on a large screen with audio. (Max 9 Guests across two rooms).
The diagnostic evaluations obtained whilst conducting our growth & wellbeing scans provide valuable insight into baby’s continual development and wellbeing, designed to compliment but not replace your NHS Dating/NT (12-14wks) and Anomaly scans (20 wks). Whilst each scan type has a specific purpose, gestation age criteria and defined reporting protocols, our qualified Sonographers have an ethical obligation to highlight, report and refer matters of concern which may be outside the scope/protocols of the performed scan. In some circumstances further NHS evaluation and screening may be required; however the gestation age criteria for such evaluations will be determined by your NHS Antenatal provider.
Pre-Scan Preparation
Arrive with a full bladder as this will assist with magnification of scan imagery. Please do NOT empty bladder prior to scan. Sugar in the blood stream will assist with baby’s movement. Remove any belly piercings in advance of your appointment. We will need to expose your abdomen during the scan, as such please consider wearing a two piece outfit in order that we may respect your dignity.
