Available to women from 16 years of age.
Babybond® Gender Scans (sometimes called sexing scans) have been performed hundreds of thousands of times and remain the most popular in the UK. Our highly accurate* professional opinion is based on a dedicated protocol and experience since 1998 using 2D ultrasound to show parents the sex of their baby. Your choice of a free rescan is included if your baby’s position is not favourable on the day for the primary purpose of this scan.
All scans performed by a qualified Sonographer with obstetric ultrasound scanning experience.
*Please note ultrasound alone can never provide a 100% guarantee of the sex of your baby, however our experience in providing accurate gender opinions is the foremost in the UK.
Sexing of your baby is complimentary with our Anomaly, Growth, Presentation, 4D Bonding and simply4D scans
Babybond wellbeing check of fetal heartbeat and movement and professional opinion on the sex of the baby using ultrasound, available from 16 – 32 weeks gestation.
When your baby’s position is not ideal for a gender scan we stop scanning and ask you to take a short gentle walk in the local area.
When the primary purpose of your scan is completed, here are some popular recording media extras our Gender scan clients take home with them:
Need to expose abdomen so ideally wear 2 piece garments i.e trousers or skirt and top.
A full bladder is not normally required for this scan.
As the name suggests, any gender scan (or sexing scan) will show you if your baby is likely to be a boy or girl, but please note that ultrasound can never provide a 100% guarantee.
Your baby's position and gestational age plus maternal BMI are key factors in the likelihood of sexing your baby accurately during your appointment. Compared to our shorter justGENDER 10 minute appointment, this 20 minute gender scan allows you to book as early as 16 weeks and as late as 32 weeks. At these earlier and later gestations, your baby's size and position can make it harder to image successfully, so we allow more time. If you do choose this longer appointment, you also get a great opportunity of seeing your baby in live 4D with our 4DFREEVIEW no cost option.
Any pregnancy scans referred to as "non-diagnostic" should be avoided.
It implies that the (diagnostic) ultrasound equipment is not 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.
For those who want to know gender - Babybond is great!
