secretGender™ Overview:

Available from 16 weeks the secretGender™ is a cost-effective baby sexing scan designed for those who are seeking to discover the sex of their baby to be revealed with family and friends at a later date. You and up to six guests are welcome in our spacious and relaxed scanning room whilst we discover the gender of your little one without revealing during your scan. Our experienced sonographer will perform visual checks for both heartbeat and movement, and we will produce two black and white printed 2D glossy photographs that you can take home as souvenirs of your experience.
Please note
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 imagery obtained.

Scan Time & Baby’s Safety
Your secretGender 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
The position of your baby can on occasions be such that gender depiction is difficult to achieve. On these occasions the sonographer may ask you to take a gentle stroll to encourage movement of your baby before recommencing your sexing scan. On the rare occasion gender cannot be established, you would be offered one complimentary re-scan visit on an alternate date. T&C's apply
Multiple Pregnancy Surcharge
A multiple pregnancy will require further scan time in order to conduct the detailed assessment required to achieve gender depticion; as such we charge an additional £35 to account for the extended appointment time allocated, and for the double quantity of souvenirs included in the package.
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, however given the secret nature of this scan, we would respectfully request you to take this into consideration when inviting guests.
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.
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.
