Find out the sex of your baby with our Gender Determination Scan.
2D Gender Determination Scans
Available from 17 weeks+
If you would like to find out whether you’re having a boy or a girl you can have a 2D Gender Determination Scan with UltraScan from 17 weeks of pregnancy.
The accuracy of our gender scan increases when the sonographer gets several different views and spends some time patiently waiting for the baby to get into a good position for the gender to be determined. The accuracy of ultrasound at this gestational age is up to 99% accurate.
You can choose how you find out the results, discuss any preferences with your sonographer at your appointment.
You could choose to have the sonographer tell you immediately, or have it kept a secret to be revealed later.
Check out our Gender Reveal Balloon Package below for a fun way to reveal the news.
Each Gender Determination Scan Includes...
The price of our Gender Determination Scan is €115 (Twin pregnancy at 18 weeks is €165).
Regarding gender determination scans we urge people to make sure they are 17 weeks gestation on the day of their scan. If someone measures under 17 weeks we will not proceed with the scan as per our company policy.
In the case of a twin pregnancy, the recommended gestation is 18 weeks.
Baby’s positioning, high BMI and a twin pregnancy can also affect gender determination on the day.
If we cannot determine gender clients will be brought back 1 week later free of charge.
Please take these points into consideration when organising events around this scan.
Gender Reveal Balloons Package
You can include the Gender Reveal Balloon for an extra €25.
Our Gender Reveal Balloons allow excitement to build on whether your bundle of joy is a boy or a girl. Once you pop the balloon you will be surrounded by pink or blue confetti indicating the results of your baby scan. Before you left UltraScan we filled the balloon with either pink or blue confetti before inflating it with helium. The black exterior ensures that the colour of the confetti cannot be seen from the outside.
*Please Note – Gender reveal balloons are only available to Ultrascan customers on the day of their appointment. Balloons can only be guaranteed to stay inflated for 8 Hours – Please choose a cannon if your reveal is not within 8 hours of your scan.
