Wellbeing & Gender Scan


The primary objective of this scan is to check the wellbeing of your baby.

Determine the wellbeing of your baby from 16 weeks and confirm their sex; with a free 4D preview included! We always aim to provide you with a fun and friendly experience, whilst only ever performing your scan by a qualified, experienced, and registered obstetric sonographer.

Scan length: approx. 10 minutes

Appointment duration: 15 minutes

What’s included with your Wellbeing & Gender Scan:

  • Up to 10 exclusive minutes with our qualified sonographer where you can ask any questions you like!
  • Locate your pregnancy
  • See and listen to your baby’s heartbeat
  • A wellbeing check will be performed to review your baby’s progress

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.

Please ensure that you arrive 5 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 Southend to purchase on the day.
