Hey Baby 4D’s Wellbeing & Gender Scan

This gender scan is designed to provide expectant parents with the opportunity to find out the sex of their baby from just 16 weeks of pregnancy (4 weeks before the NHS). Our incredible EXCLUSIVE Hey Baby Gender Reveal Lighting will turn the whole room pink if you’re having a girl and blue if you’re having a boy! Video the experience to share with your loved ones!

You must still attend your 20 week scan with the NHS.

Preparing for your gender scan

You can prepare for your gender scan by ensuring that you are properly hydrated in the 24 hours prior to your appointment. Please arrive to your appointment with a full bladder.

This is a 15 minute appointment. Please ensure that you arrive 10 minutes early for your scan in order to complete the necessary paperwork. Failure to do so may result in your appointment time being reduced.

Please bring your pregnancy notes with you. We may not need them, but it is helpful if our qualified Sonographers need to refer to them at any stage during your gender scan.

Additional images, digital downloads of your scan images and a variety of products are available at Hey Baby 4D Bishop’s Stortford to purchase on the day.
