Purpose of Scan

Wellbeing & Gender baby scan aims to offer reassurance on how the pregnancy is developing by checking over baby’s growth and assessing your baby’s sex.  This pregnancy scan will determine baby’s gender and inform parents if baby looks like a boy or girl on the baby’s scan.  If you are planning a gender reveal just let your sonographer know at the start of your appointment and she can put baby’s sex it in a sealed envelope.  At a wellbeing & gender determination scan you can hear baby’s heartbeat, just ask your sonographer if you would like to hear your baby’s heart beating via ultrasound.

What to Expect

A Wellbeing & Gender baby scan appointment is 15 minutes.  During this time the sonographer will assess how your pregnancy is progressing by preforming a growth scan on baby, assessing amniotic fluid, placenta and baby’s movement.  Your sonographer will report her baby scan findings to you.  During the gender determination the sonographer will view the “potty shot” to check if baby’s sex looks male or female.  Once your baby ultrasound scan is completed the sonographer will print 4 2D (black and white) pictures of baby for you to take away.
