Our experienced sonographer will observe heartbeat, movement, placental site, amniotic fluid volume, and the position of your baby, all of which will be documented in the form of a Digital Foetal Assessment Report. Complimentary gender evaluation is included on the condition that you are at least 16 weeks along on the day of your scan (as defined by your NHS dating scan). Gender confirmation is subject to baby presenting in a conducive position to confirm sex.
Wellbeing Observations Include:
*Subject to baby’s gestation age and position.
- Audible Heartbeat
- Observed Movement
- Placental Position
- Amniotic Fluid Volume
- Position of Baby
- Complimentary Gender Evaluation*
This gender scan does not
include growth measurements. For ultimate peace of mind, you may wish to consider the GenderGrowth&Wellbeing™
option as this includes a more detailed diagnostic evaluation of your baby’s development.
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.
Secret Gender Option
If you would like our sonographer to keep the gender of your child a secret (e.g. so that you can save the surprise for a gender reveal party) please be sure to select the ‘Secret Gender Reveal Option’ when booking. When this option is selected, we will conduct the first part of your gender scan with the viewing screens turned off to avoid revealing the sex to you and your guests.
The viewing screens will be then turned back on for the remainder of your ultrasound 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.
At minimum, you must be at 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.
