Baby Sexing / Baby Gender Scans
Baby Sexing / Baby Gender Ultrasound Scan from 16-20 weeks
Sexing or Gender ultrasound scans are performed to determine the sex (or gender) of the baby. These ultrasound scans can be performed anytime from 16-20 weeks. The results are not 100% reliable; this is because it depends if the genitalia can easily be seen and this depends on the position in which the baby is lying. If we cannot get a good image we may ask you to move around for a short time to help change the position in which your baby is lying. The sexing or gender scan is done trans-abdominally (across your tummy). A partially full bladder is needed for this type of scan.
During your scan we will inform you of the findings and following your scan we will give you your images and email your report to you. Please be aware that if your pregnancy is not progressing as planned or if an abnormality is detected during the scan, the results will be discussed with you immediately following your scan and a plan of action advised.
Please note: Our scans do not replace the routine NHS monitoring scans but are provided as a service for additional reassurance.
What will the baby sexing / baby gender ultrasound scan show?
Remember every scan is different and the image quality can vary due to several factors.

What Cherish-UK Clients Say About Us
"After a few sleepless nights due to worry I called Cherish early Saturday morning and they were able to fit us in within an hour. After a few recommendations I never had an doubt about using the service at Cherish. We had booked for a gender scan, but more for peace of mind and that was definitely given to us. The friendliness, professionalism and warmth we received during our scan was wonderful. I can not recommend your service enough. Thank you so much for showing us our little boy. "
" I found Cherish on the internet and thought it looked like a welcoming and lovely shop from the photos. Having arrived for my scan this was confirmed, we were greated at the door and taken upstairs straight away. She didnt mind waiting a few more minutes for my Dad's to arrive either. The scan room was beautifully presented and calming! Very different to my experiences of an NHS scan. I had selected a Gender scan, the team were very knowledgeable and within the first few seconds of the scan located the babies gender. They were also able to get some great photos and the babies heartbeat as well as let us have a sneak peak at what a 4D scan would look like.
I loved that not long after we left I had already been contacted by email with my attached photographs and report from the scan. The whole experience really boosted my confidence and reassured me that my baby was okay. It was lovely to see them on this calming journey, rather than my usual flustered panic! Many thanks to all the team at Cherish for making my experience so wonderful!"
"Today we had our 16 week gender scan with Jacqui. It was absolutely breath taking. She was so wonderful and we've had the most special day seeing our 3rd baby boy. We would recommend 100%. Again thankyou."
"We had our gender scan today with Jacqui. We were put at ease from the very start and Jacqui explained everything that was to happen with our appointment. We were so happy that everything looked good with our baby and Jacqui explained each detail to us. Our little bundle of joy was fast asleep and in a awkward position for Jacqui to see the gender so Jacqui offered us another scan free of charge. My cousin recommended Cherish to us and we would recommend it to anyone. Jacqui was very friendly, comforting and made our appointment personal to us. 5 star service. Thank you very much! :) "
"We came to Cherish after having our 20 week scan on the NHS. The scan we had on the NHS left us with concerns which were not properly dealt with at the hospital. Coming to Cherish has literally made our Christmas, firstly the quality of the scans is superb, really, really clear. Secondly our sonographer explained everything in great detail and allayed all of our concerns raised by the NHS scan. We walked out of our scan brimming with joy from our experience and really looking forward to the arrival of our daughter! We will definitely be back!"

"Gender scan - we couldn't recommend cherish UK and Diana any more highly. At incredibly short short notice we were able to find out the sex of our baby on mothers day. Nothing was too much, we were made to feel welcome and comfortable and not rushed at all. Such a lovely lady making this incredible experience even more special. We can't wait to return for our 4d scan. Thank know you so much."
"Absolutely love this service. We had a gender scan yesterday and baby was very stubborn, was doing everything for us not to see genitals. Jaqui persevered and we got there in the end. It's a boy!! Couldn't have been happier with the treatment we received and everyone is so pleasant and professional. Have recommended to a friend already."
"We recently came to Cherish for a 16 week gender scan. Even though baby was not properly cooperating, we eventually found out we are having a baby girl! We never felt rushed and instead we tried different positions to try and get baby to move. We recorded her heartbeat which was amazing and we're told in detail what we were looking at during the scan and it was very reassuring to see our baby girl is growing nicely and looks healthy. The staff were friendly, polite and professional and we couldn't recommend Cherish enough."
"I have used Cherish UK throughout my pregnancy for reassurance scans, gender and 4D and every single experience has been exceptional. Both Jacqui and Diana are lovely, very patient, professional and caring. After a few bad experiences in the past (NHS scans) this place has been exactly what we were hoping for (and more!). thank you! will definitely recommend to all our friends and family too."
"We have visited Cherish a number of times over the last few months for reassurance scans. Diana was so accommodating at short notice and managed to get us appointments on the same day even when they were fully booked she fitted us in. When I have emailed Cherish if I have had any concerns Diana and Jacqui have always replied to my email within a few hours and given me reassurance. I have just returned for a gender scan and would love to return for a 4D scan in the future. You are always made to feel very welcome and at ease, I would highly recommend Cherish and thank them for all the support they have given me so far x"

"I have visited Cherish for an early scan and a gender scan during my pregnancy so far and had lovely experiences both times. I called to book an appointment as I was concerned after I suffered a fall. After getting an appointment on the same day, Jacqui resurred me that all was well and was very calming and professional. I have always recieved top class service at Cherish and would recommend them completely. Thanks Cherish!"

"We had a gender scan with Jacqui today. She told us about our little boy almost instantly, and kept showing us him from different angles - it was a great bonding experience, especially for Daddy who's been at work and missed my NHS scans so far. Jacqui was thorough, talked us through what she was looking at/measuring and why, and reassured us that at a glance all seems well. Very professional service and you feel like you've gotten real value for money. Report and pictures emailed over very quickly too. Will definitely be back for another scan soon. Thank you :)"

"I attended Cherish for a gender scan when I was 17 weeks & 5 days pregnant. This was an experience that was worth every penny and I would recommend to anybody that is considering any of the services at Cherish-UK. Jacqui made the experience personal and informative for myself and my partner, her manner made our experience even more special than it already was. Jacqui's knowledge meant that all the questions I asked were answered in detail as she continued to speak to us throughout the duration of the scan. Thank-you Jacqui for your positive contribution to our special memory. We shall definitely be returning :-) "
"I booked to have a gender scan, we had previously used this service for a reassurance scan at 7 weeks and the experience and the way we were treated by Diana was world class. Today at exactly 16 weeks pregnant we had our gender scan, Diana was so patient and even when I wasn't sure I could see things clearly, Diana then offered to do an internal scan for me to see a lot clearer. It was the best experience because I did not feel rushed and I felt as if everything was as important to Diana as it was for my partner and I. So we were pleased when we found out we were having a little princess just what I wanted. I would recommend Cherish to everyone and when you are treated with such care and attention money does not really come into the equation plus above all you get to see your baby :) thank you Diana"
"Had our 16 week gender scan today with Diana and can honestly say it was amazing. The clinic itself is lovely and Diana was very friendly she talked us through the scan on the screen pointing out all the babies features and did different views of the baby and we also got to see the baby in 4d which was amazing and got some great pictures which were also emailed to us. We found out the gender....it's a girl!!!! Overall we were very pleased with our experience and would recommend CHERISH - UK to all. Thank you so much."
