Why can’t you predict my baby’s gender?

On some occasions we can not predict the gender of your baby. This is almost always due to the clarity of the images, gender not being imaged or the gestation being too early. If we are unable to predict, we will send you a curtesy email to let you know and include the reason why and a full refund.

What is an insight and when do we offer them?

We offer an insight when we cannot give you a prediction with an 80% confidence, because we believe there is a higher chance of error. This is most commonly because baby's nub was only partially captured on your ultrasound image, but we may still be able to provide you with what sex your baby is from what is visable. Your prediction will tell you what sex the nub has familiar features with and will include a illustrated drawing and explanation of our findings. We do this by comparing the angle, anatomy, positioning and presentation. Even though we cannot tell you if your baby will be a boy or a girl, we are pleased to offer an insight which will make the guessing even more fun. We will ask you if you want to proceed with the insight or recieve a full refund instead.

How accurate is my prediction?

Our team are experts in early foetal development, specialising in the collection of dense tissue that will become baby’s genitalia. Trained by sonographers, we have many years experience and hold an extremely high accuracy rating of 99%.

However, we will take this opportunity to state that we are not doctors, and whilst the theory is credible and reliable, we do not guarantee the gender with our predictions.

Our predictions will include a percentage of confidence that we have in our prediction. Our insights do not include a percentage of confidence due to the change of change being higher than those of predictions.
