Are You Ready to Know Your Baby's Gender?

First, we’d like to say congratulations on your pregnancy! It’s a thrilling experience to bring a new life into the world, and we understand that you want to do everything you can to make that entry as smooth as possible. For many parents, this means learning their unborn child’s gender as soon as possible so that they can prepare properly.

At Women First GYN, Dr. Margie Corney and our team of prenatal specialists are with our patients every step of the way during the pregnancy journey. One of the more exciting experiences is learning the sex of your unborn child, which is why we’re proud to offer a Gender Reveal Package in our Prenatal Memories suite.

When you’re ready to learn the gender of your baby, here’s a look at how Prenatal Memories can help turn this occasion into a truly joyous one.

To know or not know

Before we get into our gender reveal services, we want to acknowledge that the decision to learn the sex of your baby is a most personal one. We’re here to support your choice, and we understand that, above all else, the health of your unborn child, as well as your health, are paramount.

There are many reasons why parents decide to learn the gender of their baby, whether it’s their first child or they’re adding to a growing family. In your case, perhaps you simply want to know whether to hold onto clothing from your previous children, or conversely, you’re first-time parents who want to prepare everything well in advance. 

Some parents may be expecting multiple babies, so they turn to a gender reveal to make life with twins, triplets, or more, a little easier right from the start.

Still, other parents want to have an answer to the question everyone seems to ask of them: Is it a boy or girl?

Whatever your reasons for wanted to learn the sex of your baby, we’re here to help.

Making the moment more special

If you’ve decided to learn the gender of your baby, we’ve gone to great lengths to ensure the moment is one you’ll never forget. To that end, we’ve created our Prenatal Memories suite, which is a separate area within our practice that’s designed to accommodate you and up to four family members or friends.

Our experienced and licensed sonographers first ensure that you and your family are comfortable, and then they get to work. We’ve equipped ourselves with the latest sonographic technology — the state-of-the-art Samsung H60 V2.0 ultrasound machine — which can render 2D, 3D, and even 4D images (for your gender reveal, we typically rely on 2D and some 3D images).

Once our sonographer begins, you and your loved ones have a full view of the procedure on a high-definition, 40-inch monitor. The entire ultrasound process takes only 15 minutes or so, but you walk out with lasting memories in the form of five black-and-white prints, a video clip of the sonogram, and a digital record of the study, which we send to you via email or SMS.

If you’d like to learn more or you’d like to set up an appointment for your Gender Reveal Package in our Prenatal Memories suite, please contact our office in Chesapeake, Virginia.
