Gender Scans

Gender Scans – From 19 weeks

Cost €150.00

To include photographs and computerised report

This scan consists of a full anatomical survey and its purpose is:

  • to determine gender (from 19 weeks gestation )
  • to determine the lie & presentation of the baby (breech or cephalic)
  • to estimate fetal weight
  • to determine the location of the placenta
  • to measure the fluid around the baby
  • to measure the blood flow in the baby’s umbilical artery
  • to evaluate the pregnancy for abnormalities

Sometimes due to presentation and lie, baby is not in a favourable position to determine the gender. If this is the case it may be necessary for you to return for one further scan appointment when hopefully baby will be in a more favourable position.

Gender determination is 85% accurate.

Gender Scan-What To Expect At Merrion Fetal Health?

Gender scans can be carried out from 19 weeks onwards, and have an 85% accuracy rate. This scan aims to determine the gender of your baby, and will also try to estimate fetal weight. This scan will look to determine the presentation and lie of the baby, the location of the placenta, and measure the fluid around baby. Blood flow to baby’s umbilical artery will be measured, and the scan will look for any abnormalities.

When you attend the Merrion Fetal Health Clinic for a gender scan, it is quite possible that you may have been at the clinic for a previous pregnancy scan, but if you have not been with us before then you will fill out a registration form when you arrive. You will await your sonographer in the waiting room. Your sonographer will bring you to the ultrasound room and confirm your details before performing the ultrasound scan.

The team at Merrion Fetal Health wish to ensure that your visit is as relaxing as possible and we welcome any questions, so please do not hesitate to ask your sonographer any questions you may have.
