*Ad – Unpaid Review
If you follow me on social media, you will know that on Wednesday, we went to Window to the Womb, Ellesmere Port for an early gender scan – and we found out that baby is a GIRL!!
I should probably add here that had baby been a boy, we would have been over the moon, but I don’t think that there is any harm saying that we were hoping it would be a girl.

How was our experience at Window to the Womb, Ellesmere Port?
In a nutshell – incredible.

I don’t remember the next few minutes if I’m honest because, as much as I tried not to, I was crying. I know the boys were jumping about and were so, so happy, and Graham was just standing there in a bit of shock. Even though both of us did have a feeling it might be a girl, I don’t think we actually expected it. The scan carried on for another few minutes, with a sneaky 4d peek which was amazing.
As part of the package we had – the wellbeing and gender scan (£59), we had 4 printed
If you are considering a private scan, whether for reassurance purposes, gender, or the 4d scans further on, I highly recommend Window to the Womb, Ellesmere Port.
