Gender&Growth™ Overview

Gender&Growth™ is a private gender scan package that gives you the opportunity to discover the sex of your baby from 16 weeks gestation, plus all the benefits of the Growth&Reassure scan. You and up to six guests are welcome to watch as we discover the gender of your little one in live 2D footage, which will be displayed on to large screen in our spacious and relaxed clinic environment. We will endeavour to capture a 4dGlimpse and provide memorable keepsake photographs with all printed imagery uploaded to photocloud™, allowing you to instantly share your news with family and friends. We will perform growth measurements and weight calculations, establish placenta position and fluid volume, provide an audible heartbeat trace, identify the position of your baby, and provide gender confirmation; all of this information will be documented on a growthAssure™ Report. We also welcome any questions you may have prior to and during the experience.
Please note
No gender scan can provide 100% accuracy. Our qualified, highly experienced obstetric ultrasound sonographers will provide their professional opinion based on the imagery obtained during your scan.

Scan Time & Baby’s Safety
Your Gender&Growth scan will last for approximately 5 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.
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 required to achieve gender depiction; as such we charge an additional £30 to account for the extended appointment time allocated, and for the double quantity of souvenirs included in the package. It is recommended that this scan is performed between gestation weeks 16-30.
Sonographers & Regulation
All ultrasound scans are performed by qualified and experienced obstetric Sonographers registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC). First Encounters Ultrasound Ltd is registered and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC)
Guest Policy
We have seating for up 6 guests and children are most welcome.
The diagnostic evaluations obtained whilst conducting the Growth&Reassure™ and Growth&Presentation™ 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.
A 4dGlimpe™ is a complimentary options based on your baby's position being favourable at the time of scan. It is not the primary purpose of your selected scan and failure to achieve does not constitute reason for rescan.
