I dont know what this is all about but i saw it on "Baby Center"..
I know for a fact the hospital I attend tells you the sex if you would like to know, they just have a sign saying to let the person doing the ultrasound that you would like to know the sex at the beginning of the scan and they will only tell you if theyre certain and they wont go out their way to have a look if babys being difficult, ect. which is fair enough theyre not gonna spend all day looking for sex of your baby when they have other people to see! anyway here it is....
Will the scan reveal the sex of my baby?
Ultrasound scans can show the sex of an unborn baby. But it is against the law for hospitals, doctors and sonographers to give you this information. This is because of an alarming rise in female foeticides. All ultrasound clinics and hospitals should display a notice stating that a " sex-determination test is a punishable offence and anybody found violating the law will be prosecuted". It is also an offence for you to ask about the sex of your baby. At most hospitals you will need to sign a document before your ultrasound scan, stating that you will not ask the doctor or sonographer about the sex of your unborn baby
Oh i see, sorry i couldnt find if it was a UK based site or whatever, but I just thought i know loads of people from all over that find out the sex of their children at the hospital at 20 week scan so just thought what a load of ****
