Frimley Park- do they tell you or not, please clear this up for me?!?!?!

I'm having #1 and have been led to believe anecdotally that Frimley Park (Surrey) do not disclose the gender of the baby at the 20 week scan.

I had just accepted this and whenever anyone asks if we know (we are only 13 weeks!) we can just say the hospital doesn't tell you. Anyway, last night I met someone who swears that they DID tell her SIL for #3.

So now I don't know and there must be someone on MN who will have been to Frimley Park recently and will know the answer.


Just to clarify- not really worried either way but would like to prepare myself for what might happen at the next scan. grin

If you ask then they will tell you (if they can tell themselves, it's not always clear). Had baby No 1 there July 2008.

I had a 20 week scan at Frimley Park just 5 weeks ago...and yes, they told us the gender but only when we asked. They make it pretty clear that it's not 100% reliable, but if you ask and they have an idea they'll tell you.

Of course, whether you want everyone else to know is a whole different question! It might be a lot easier to stick with the line that the hospital won't tell you or that they couldn't tell on the day...

Thanks girls, I will consider this point cleared up and begin counting down to the 20 week scan where I will ask the gender and see if they have a good view...

You are right though, smosma I might just stick with my story and have a little secret between me and DH wink
