As the name suggests, a gender scan (or sexing scan) will tell you if your baby is a boy or girl, but please note that ultrasound cannot provide a 100% guarantee.
You may want this professional opinion to share with your partner, your family or simply to do the all-important shopping.
Some women find bonding with their baby easier if they know the sex. Some prefer the surprise on their birth day.
Any pregnancy scans referred to as "non-diagnostic" should be avoided.
It implies that the (diagnostic) ultrasound equipment is not be being used in accordance with manufacturer's guidelines, that the person operating it may not be a health care professional or following their duty of care requirements (i.e. ignoring any incidental findings), may not be professionally insured and are ignoring the fundamental safety guideline set out by the DoH in the UK.
All of our pregnancy scans include a minimum of a well-being check, are carried out by health care professionals who will act upon their duty of care with incidental findings and who can write clinical reports.
Our ultrasound systems are sourced through official channels and are set-up and operated to the manufacturer's guidelines.
Very rarely, there may be a problem that is totally unexpected and we are the bearers of bad news.
Never easy to hear, we will ensure you have the time, support and a plan of care arranged. We will continue our course of support for as long as you need us.
If you become concerned about any aspect of your scan, the images and recordings you have taken home or you wish to make a complaint, you can contact the clinic where you had your scan and our staff will discuss any concerns that you may have.
