    At 16 weeks the gender of your baby can accurately been seen on ultrasound. The sonographer will look in-between the babies legs to determine the gender. If you do not want to find out the gender in the scan room that is not a problem just let the sonographer know and they will turn the screens off while looking at the gender. We will print off an image of the girl or boy bits we will write its a boy or its a girl on the image and put that in and envelope for you to open later. If you wish to purchase a gender reveal balloon or gender reveal cannon we will get this ready for you to ensure you have a great surprise. A gender scan will also include a basic well being check from top of babies head to babies feet to ensure all is developing normally. We will listen to babies heart beat. There will also be a quick sneak peek of the baby is 4D.

  • 16 Weeks Pregnancy Scan

    People will often choose to have a scan at 16 weeks even if they do not want to know the gender as it is in-between the 12 week NHS scan and the 20 week NHS scan. At 16 weeks the baby will look like a baby and is still small enough to see the entire baby on the screen. We will do a basic well being check, scanning from the top of babies head to babies feet to ensure all is developing normally. We will listen to babies heartbeat.

    Most people would not have SneakPeek Test at 16 weeks as it takes about 1 week to get results and they could have gender scan instead.

  • NIPT Test
    NIPT Test

  • 16 Weeks NIPT Test

    An NIPT test can been done anytime after 10 weeks. Some people will choose to have an NIPT test at 16 weeks if they have missed the opportunity to have the first trimester screening offer by the NHS. The first trimester screening can only been done between 11-14 weeks. The NIPT can be done anytime after 10 weeks so is a option for those that have missed the first trimester screening. The NIPT is also much more accurate than the first trimester screening so is also something people may choose to do if their first trimester screening has come back as high risk. The NIPT test is a blood test and does not harm the baby or the mother.
