Further Information:

We can determine the gender of your baby within 90% accuracy. It should be noted ultrasound cannot provide 100% confirmation, since some fetus’s can be ambiguous. The Sonographer will not disclose the gender until they feel completely confident in which case they may ask you to move around to relax the baby into a good position.
For the 2D DVD, we recommend this up to 22 weeks, after this the baby becomes too big to see on a full screen.

*Please note the Wellbeing assessment is handwritten report confirming baby’s wellbeing.

All scans are performed by a qualified sonographers with diagnostic obstetric scanning experience

Please note that it is your responsibility to forward your report/findings to your GP/Healthcare Provider.


When is the best time to determine the sex of the baby?

Although we can perform the scan from 16 weeks, for assurance and accuracy of the sex, we recommend a minimum booking in around 17 weeks especially if you hold a high bmi. Please be advised our sonographers will not disclose the sex unless they themselves are absolutely sure.

What if you cannot confirm the gender?

We will request you are to move around and re-attempt scanning you, if after 3 attempts we are unable to confirm the gender you will be invited back free of charge for a five minute appointment to re-confim gender. Please note this rescan will only be offered if you are over 16 weeks. If you have booked in too early then you would need to pay in full again.

Do I need to drink water before my scan appointment?

Our guidance is to drink approximately 1 litre of water, at least 20 mins prior to the scan, however, we advise you drink as much as you can tolerate and to not make yourself uncomfortable.

Who will perform the scan?

All of our sonographers are qualified with diagnostic obstetric ulltrasound scanning experience, and are accredited by either the Health Professional Council, The General Medical Council, Society of Radiographers or Royal College of Midwives and work within the NHS alongside their role with My Ultra Healthcare Ltd.

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

Please bring your along your hospital notes (if you have been given them) and reports to assist our Sonographers if a referral is required.

Will you advise me of any abnormalities?

Please note, our scans do not replace any of your NHS scans. During your appointment a general well-being check is performed on the baby, in an event of any abnormality being detected, we will discuss this with you and provide a full report for to forward to your health practitioner.

Do I still need to visit the NHS if I had a scan with you?

Yes, our services are a complementary service, which works alongside the NHS.

What happens in terms of referrals?

We advise all our customers to advise their GP or midwife know of their intention to have a scan with us. On arrival at My Ultra Healthcare we will ask you to complete a registration form, where your GP/midwife details will be requested. If from the scan there shows a need to contact or share any information regarding you or your baby, you are responsible for providing the report to your GP/Midwife.
