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.
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.
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.
If you would like to have a gender scan in Alderley Edge, then all you need to do is book your appointment at The Birth Company clinic in Cheshire. You can arrange your sexing scan at any time after 16 weeks.
' Professional and reassuring 'Helen Campbell
The sonographer was ready as soon as I arrived, and she was extremely calming, personable and professional. The scan and blood test where efficient without feeling rushed and all very easy. These appointments can feel uneasy and make you feel anxious but I felt reassured and in professional hands the whole time
I saw Kate throughout my first pregnancy and am now doing so again with my second. She is absolutely amazing, she explains everything really clearly, and has answered all sorts of bizarre questions and worries I have had. On top of being clinically excellent she is also just the loveliest person and always a pleasure to see.Sarah Elliott
We had the harmony test with the Birth Company and had a reassurance scan with sonographer Kirsty McGarry who was absolutely lovely and really put our minds at rest. We had been scared by our NHS dating scan and left feeling like there was something wrong. We explained the situation and was treated very professionally and with good care. Also speedy appointments also as I had phone in the morning and got an appointment by afternoon. So thankful.Ashley and Tom
Really friendly, efficient service. Great experience overall. Had the Panorama. My appointment was with Kate who was absolutely fantastic. The results came really quickly. Have a comparison with private healthcare elsewhere and must say that The Birth Company was just how I would like to be treated when I pay for medical services - attentively, calmly, friendly, in a pleasant environment that doesn't look like hospital. Top marks!Anna

The Birth Company has been excellent, providing timely scans and blood tests during my IVF treatment abroad. Staff are always friendly and extremely efficient. I would highly recommend coming here.
' Professional and friendly 'Lyndsey Dilla
When I first contacted the Birth Company I spoke to Danielle. She was fantastic. She went above & beyond to put me at easy & make the journey from Kent as stress free as possible. Every staff member that myself and my husband have come into contact with have been approachable, professional and friendly. Kate scanned me the first time and put me completely at easy. Lisa on reception is professional and very approachable. Highly recommended
' Highly recommended 'Emelie
Donald was so lovely! I was so nervous as I have a bad history and he was super quick and confirmed my baby's heartbeat as quickly as he could. He spent time showing me the baby and the anatomy and it was the best money I have ever spent! The reception girls were lovely too - considering they deal with babies day in day out they were super excited for me! Thank you so much one and all! If only I lived in London and could have all my scans with you!
