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?

Insights are a glimpse at what stage of development your baby’s nub is at right now. We do this by comparing the angle, anatomy, positioning and presentation (how it looks!). We cannot tell you if the baby will definitely be a boy or a girl, but can tell you what is currently happening at this time in development with a drawing included which shows what gender the nub has familiar features of.

When do we offer insights?

We offer insights when we cannot give a prediction with at least 85% confidence, because we believe that there is a higher chance of change. This is due to the gestation being early, meaning that there is more time left for your baby to develop, or the images not being as clear as we’d like. We pride ourselves on our Nub Theory knowledge and have read indisputable evidence about its reliability.
Therefore, we are pleased to offer an insight, which will make the guessing, even more fun!

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.
