Sexing scan £60
Your sexing scan can take place between 16-23 weeks of pregnancy and is a 2D abdominal ultrasound scan.
During the course of your sexing scan we will show you your baby in available 3D/4D views for free and it also includes 2 6×4” glossy prints for you to take away and cherish forever.
Your sexing scan will therefore:
- Check the gender of your baby
Please note: No ultrasound scan can guarantee a 100% accurate sexing of your baby
As this is an abdominal scan it may be helpful to wear clothing that allows the sonographer easy access to your tummy region.
Sometimes it may not be possible to obtain the gender due to babys position if this happens we may ask you to go for a short walk and have something to eat and drink and return to be rescanned. We may also ask you to return at a later date for a rescan.
What happens is a problem is detected?
Whilst we do not wish to worry you about your pregnancy, sometimes there may be a problem detected that is completely unexpected. It is important for you to understand that if the sonographer believes there is a problem he/she has a ‘duty of care’ to discuss these findings with you in a sensitive way and provide you with as much information as he/she reasonably can.
If necessary and with your permission they may contact your local hospitals maternity unit or your GP so that a medical follow-up can be made. He/she may also write a letter explaining his/her concerns.
Occasionally the sonographer may require a second opinion. This does not necessarily mean that there is something wrong; many scan findings just need a ‘second look’ for reassurance. The sonographer will inform you of any such uncertain findings and discuss what your options are.
