What will I see?

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 16 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.

We do our gender scan alongside an overview of fetal wellbeing.
We will also check the fetal heart rate and you will be able to listen to the heartbeat.

You can choose how you find out the results and discuss any preferences with your sonographer at your appointment. You can choose to have the sonographer tell you immediately, or have it kept a secret to be revealed later using one of our Gender reveal cannons or balloons that we can supply on the day of your scan.

When can I get a
Gender Determination
Scan?

Our gender determination scans are available from 16 weeks onwards. We recommend for twin pregnancies 17+ weeks.

What are the
benefits?

Gender determination scans are probably the most personal of choices expecting parents have. For those parents that want to know the sex of the baby, this can be one of the most exciting moments during their pregnancy journey as it can help them get to know their baby on a deeper level as they feel that knowing this means they can start thinking about names and colour palettes for the nursery.

Not only this, some parents choose to include their family and friends in their pregnancy journey through a gender reveal package which they find helps strengthen the bond between their new arrival and their nearest and dearest.

What can I expect on
the day?

When you arrive at UltraScan you will be greeted by one of our amazing receptionists.

Our receptionist will give you a short form to fill out to collect some basic information like your name, contact details and date of birth.

Once your form is complete, your sonographer will call you into the scan room to begin your ultrasound scan which will last approximately 15 minutes.

Each client will be allowed 3 guests per appointment.

Our scan rooms are equipped with large medical-grade LED screens to allow you to see your baby’s heartbeat at your scan.

After your scan you can select your favourite scan images from our touchscreen displays and have them printed on our professional-grade photo printer and emailed or sent via Whatsapp to allow you to immediately share with family and friends.

You will be allowed 3 guests per appointment.
