Am I having a boy or a girl?
For those of you who just can’t wait to find out if you are having a boy or a girl – we provide the opportunity to know the gender of your baby as early as 15 weeks. Not that it really matters – but let’s face it – knowing is fun. Something we do that other sites don’t – guarantee accuracy. If we get the gender incorrect – we’ll pay you $250.
It would be great of your insurance covered this fun ultrasound, but they won’t since there is no medical indication. We keep the cost down and perform the ultrasound for only $75. You will get the images texted to any smartphone for keepsake or your own personal gender reveal.
Unfortunately – due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot have family members or friends present for the scan. However, you are welcome to facetime the scan or let us know and we will keep the gender secret and simply send them to a smartphone of your choosing.
Why have your gender ultrasound at Diablo Valley Perinatal?
Because we are an American Institute in Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) accredited, and Callifornia Perinatal Diagnostic Center (PDC) licensed center, we maintain the state of the art equipment and adhere to rigorous standards of ultrasound excellence in prenatal diagnosis. That same attention to detail is applied to your gender ultrasound. Does that seem like overkill for telling you the answer to a simple question – boy or girl? It is. But without that level of excellence and attention to detail – you run a pretty good risk of being told the wrong gender at an outside “entertainment” facility – which we routinely see at the time of their 20 week detailed anatomic survey.
A Perinatologist's Perspective:
The nuchal translucency (NT) exam at 11-14 weeks and the detailed is an absolutely critical exam. It not only provides early information about the health of the pregnancy, but also accurately dates the pregnancy - and while many people are sure of their due date before the NT exam, statistics show that about 60% of women do not get their conception date correct (and thus their due date). It may not seem like an important matter at 12 weeks, but having a due date off by 5-7 days 28 weeks into the future could be critical to the timing of your delivery and health of your baby.
