Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose to have a gender scan?
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.
What if my scan shows something is wrong or I need help after my appointment?
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.
