Gender Scan

Ultrasound scans to find out your baby's gender

Once you have been to your 12-week hospital ultrasound scan and the excitement has faded, you will quickly turn your sights to more ultrasound scans. Every new mother wants to see their babies as often as possible, and maybe you want to have a gender reveal? Our team here at Ultrasound Plus can offer you an ultrasound scan that provides you with the gender confirmation you might be looking for. Having early ultrasound gender scans is the perfect way to find out whether you are having a boy or a girl. After the gender scan ultrasound, the only question left is whether you will have a gender reveal or not!

Let our team take great care of you as you experience the exhilarating feeling of finding out your baby’s gender. We’ll also take this as an opportunity to carry out a well-being check, providing you with the reassurance that everything is okay. You can make an appointment at one of our clinics in London, Brentwood, Birmingham, Watford, Leicester, or Kingston upon Thames.

What does a gender ultrasound include?

Are you excited to find out whether you will be having a baby boy or girl?

Ultrasound Plus is here to make that moment even more special with our gender ultrasound. We promise a second-to-none service that you can experience alongside your family and friends. 

How accurate are gender scans?

Over a decade of experience has enabled us to determine the gender of babies with over 99% accuracy; however, it should be noted that no ultrasound can provide 100% confirmation. Some foetuses can be ambiguous, and it entirely depends on your baby’s position. To help the result be as accurate as possible, our qualified sonographers may ask you to walk around so your baby moves into a different position if they are not 100% confident. You’re also required to come with a full bladder to get clearer scan pictures.

4D sneak scans are available as part of the private gender scan in physical and digital forms. Our fully qualified sonographers will be able to provide you with a sneak peek of a 4D scan.

What is the purpose of a gender ultrasound?

During your gender reveal scans, our team of sonographers will show you your baby. You can bring your partners and family or friends to find out the gender of your baby. Our team will point out their heartbeat, head, legs, and arms, along with their gender.

At your gender scan, we will also let you listen to your baby’s heartbeat. Not only that, but we can offer early reassurance everything is okay and the baby is growing within range.

A gender ultrasound works to confirm whether your baby is a boy or a girl; these are also known as sexing scans. Your private gender scan will also look to confirm the health of your foetus, the foetal gestation age, position of baby and your placental position during your appointment. Should you have any questions or queries, you can get answers from our professional team.

Gender Ultrasound FAQs

A gender ultrasound can be performed from 16-40 weeks gestation; however, we recommend a minimum booking of around 17 weeks, especially if you hold a higher BMI. Our sonographers will not disclose your baby’s sex unless they are 100% sure, so it is important you book your gender ultrasound at the right time.

If we cannot determine the sex of your baby during your gender ultrasound, we will request you take a short walk or move around a bit until the baby moves into a different position. We will then attempt to rescan two times, and if we are still unable to confirm the gender, we will invite you back free of charge for a five-minute appointment to re-confirm your baby’s gender. This rescan is only available if you are over 16 weeks. If you have booked in before 16 weeks, you will need to pay in full again to confirm the gender at a later date.

We recommend you drink approximately one litre of water at least 20 minutes before your gender ultrasound. If possible, drink more, but don’t make yourself uncomfortable.

Our team of friendly qualified sonographers will perform your gender ultrasound. They are accredited and work within the NHS alongside their role in Ultrasound Plus.

Please bring along your hospital notes so our sonographers can consult them if a referral is required.

Ultrasound Plus will advise you to discuss your findings with your GP and/or midwife. If you wish, Ultrasound Plus can also provide you with details on where you can receive further follow-up tests.

It’s important to keep in mind that our scans do not replace the NHS pregnancy scans. As standard procedure, our scans include a well-being check, and if any abnormalities are detected, we will discuss it in full and provide a report to your health practitioner.

As mentioned above, it is important you still go to your NHS scans as our gender ultrasounds are a complimentary service that works alongside the NHS.

“We have now had 3 scans at the Brentwood branch, and the staff are lovely! This has been our favourite private clinic.. the sonographer Teresa is lovely, she explains everything in so much detail and doesn’t rush through the scan! No doubt we will be back again before our baby comes.”
