Available to women from 16 years of age.
Private ultrasound gender scan optimized for fast results.
We have performed hundreds of thousands of gender scans and remain the UK's leading private provider. Our highly accurate* professional opinion is based on a dedicated protocol plus the experience gained since 1998 in 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 with professional opinion on the sex of the baby using ultrasound, available from 18 - 30 weeks gestation. Only for single pregnancies – see Gender scan for multiple pregnancies.
Need to expose abdomen so ideally wear 2 piece garment 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 20 minute Gender scan appointment, this 10 minute gender scan is only available in the "fast yield" 18 to 30 weeks gestation range. During this stage, your baby's size and position are usually ideal for an accurate Gender ID opinion in a shorter time, making it an affordable option for new mums and dads wanting to know "just gender"
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.
We also offer a more comprehensive Gender scan from 16 weeks
I just wanted to say thank you again for my scan this afternoon.
I was so impressed with the service I received and the sonographer and her assistant were both lovely ladies......I wouldn't hesitate to return for a second scan or to recommend Ultrasound Direct to my friends and family.
