Having a Gender Scan in Alderley Edge, Cheshire

If you want to know whether you’re expecting a boy or girl then we can perform a gender scan at our ultrasound centre in Alderley Edge, Cheshire at any time after 16 weeks.

Why Have a Gender Scan?

Deciding whether you want to find out your baby’s gender is a very personal choice as some people want to leave it as a surprise until the birth. However, knowing if you’re expecting a boy or girl can be useful when you’re choosing names or making other preparations for the birth. It can also be nice to be able to tell friends and family whether you’re expecting a boy or a girl. You might even want to arrange a gender reveal party so that you can share the news with everyone.

If you decide that you do want to know your baby’s sex, then you can arrange a gender scan at our Alderley Edge clinic in Cheshire. Having a sexing scan can be a good idea if you don’t want to wait till your next routine scan (the anomaly scan at 20-24 weeks). As well as enabling you to find out your baby’s gender as soon as possible, arranging this extra ultrasound will also give you a chance to check in on your baby in between the routine scans.

We will usually be able to accurately identify your baby’s sex with an ultrasound scan after 16 weeks, but it can sometimes be a little trickier. If your baby is in the wrong position, then we might not be able to get a clear view. However, we will get another chance at your next ultrasound scan. If you weren’t able to find out at your anomaly scan, then you can always book a gender scan at a later date.

When Can You Have a Gender Scan in Cheshire?

We can perform a gender scan at our ultrasound clinic in Alderley Edge, Cheshire at any time after 16 weeks. It isn’t possible to tell whether your baby is a boy or girl from an ultrasound before this time. We can usually determine your baby’s gender at any scan after this date, so you can find out at your anomaly scan or any later wellbeing scans if you don’t have a separate gender scan. However, if you want to find out as soon as possible then you should book a gender scan at our Cheshire clinic at 16 weeks.

You do have one other option that can enable you to find out a little earlier. If you are having NIPT to screen for chromosomal abnormalities, then you can choose to find out your baby’s gender at the same time. We can perform NIPT from just 10 weeks, so you can learn your baby’s gender at any time after this.
