With my first pregnancy, my husband and I learned that we were having a boy during a regular 20-week ultrasound. But as it is for so many moms, lots of things were different for my second pregnancy! 

This time, my husband and I have to prepare for our new baby while caring for a toddler. Shopping for the necessities and decorating the nursery are a little bit more complicated with a little one who wants to help. Luckily, we were able to learn our new baby’s gender three months sooner with the help of SneakPeek! 

SneakPeek is a new and innovative technology that detects fetal DNA in the mother’s bloodstream to determine the gender of the baby rapidly and accurately. After a simple, non-invasive blood test, I got my SneakPeek results in only 48 hours – we are expecting a baby girl! With this wonderful news, my husband and I were able to begin preparing much sooner than if we had waited for the 20-week ultrasound – it was a huge relief. The cool thing is if you want to be surprised with your results at a gender reveal party, you can have them securely sent to a loved one. 

Heartland Women’s Healthcare, where I work and get Ob-Gyn care, is the only Ob-Gyn practice offering this service in the Missouri and Southern Illinois communities we serve. Any mom in the area can get a SneakPeek test with us, not just current patients! For me, this was a gamechanger, and I’m so glad we were able to start welcoming our daughter to the family sooner.
