Do they really not tell you the sex in the East End?

It was like this in Coventry when I had DC1 16 years ago and I DC2 12 years ago (but then they didn't even offer 20 week scans in Coventry) but thought things had changed.

Have put in Telly Addicts, as I'm only asking for flippant reasons, not serious antenatal ones.

Relatives in the US knew the sex at 13 weeks, so surprised they won't tell Stacey.

In some areas they won't tell you the sex of the baby. It's generally areas where there are communities who openly prefer boys over girls.

I think it was because it was in A and E so not a 'normal' antenatal scan. EE is too dark for me tonight, I can't see anything!

I think it depends on the area.

In some cases it has been known for people to try to abort when a baby is the wrong sex so in areas where that is the case it is often a blanket policy not to reveal the sex.

They don't tell you in Shropshire - or Shrewsbury anyway - because they want you to fork out £50 for a sexing scan!
