Any ladies in Northern ireland?..re..private scans
They wont tell you the sex at my hospital so I am looking into paying for one...
But I have rang 2 clinics.. one didnt do just the sexing scan and charge £200 I dont wont a 3d/4d scan as I think it spoils the surprise as to what baby looks like, one did the sexing scan but charged £150 WTH!!!!! I dont mind paying but I have seen in Uk you can get them for £75!! why charge so much here?
Any ladies from co. down or the likes know of anywhere I could get one a ikkle bit cheaper? as I say I am not mean and would pay if have I have to but I think it's a bit steep as I did have a 4d scan with my little boy who's now 4, at the same clinic they are charging £150 for just the sexing scan,, and the 4d scan was only £175 4 years ago ahhhhhh This will be my 7th baby, My eldest is a girl and the rest boys.. I like to find out to be prepared with clothes ect...
Hiya, I'm in N.I. I flit between Antrim and Lisburn. My hospital doesn't tell you the sex either but thats ok with me as this is my first. Well done with this being no.7!! That is amazing!!
I'm not sure of the prices but I know that 323 lisburn road do them and there is the Malone clinic. I've heard mixed reports about the Malone Clinic. I dont think that there are many other private places over here to be honest. I have to say I agree with you that the prices you have been quoted are a bit steep!! The other option is to see if there are any places in Glasgow and arrange a wee romantic overnight stay and have it done while you are there. Translink do very reasonable bus/ferry/hotel packages (my DH is scottish so we use these regularly)
The thing with the Malone Clinic was that another girl on here told me that when they went the sonographer was pretty rude to them and even though they told her that they didn't want to know the sex of the baby she actually printed them a picture of that area of the baby............ This girl was also left with some internal bruising as the sonographer was so rough with her. I know it has put me off going there. My DH can't make it to the 20 week scan with me as he will be away for work so I was going to take him to a private clinic as a wee surprise but I dont think that I will use them after hearing that.

I had to book my 20 week scan at my consultant appointment and the woman in radiology said "they dont really want you here at 20 weeks they want you here at 21 weeks". this was even though my consultant had written on the card that they wanted me in at 20 weeks. I dont mind but thought it was a bit odd.

Good luck with the scan info!!
hi!! I saw your post and wanted to ask you if you had went for the 4d scan? Do you mind me asking how it was,was it expensive?how long did it take?this is my 4th pregnancy and my last so i really want to do this,never get the chance to again!!thank you very much
I'm from Co Down area. Are you booked into the Ulster Hospital by any chance? I had my 20 week scan there last week and although there are signs everywhere telling you that they won't scan for the gender and not to ask, my husband did and we were told what we're having. It all depends on the sonographer on the day I think and the manner in which you ask! Another local girl on the forum here did the same at the Ulster and she was told as well. If you want any further info then feel free to Pm me. I am booked into 3five2 Medical for a 4D scan in September, but it's a birthday present from Hubs, otherwise I wouldn't fork out £240 for a scan when I know the baby's healthy!
