Traditionally couples expecting a baby, find out the gender at hospital scans or when the baby is born, but increasingly now, couples have begun making the moment into an event, by holding a party or gathering.
It was a trend that started in the US, becoming the next big thing after baby showers, where couples or expectant mums perform stunts like cutting a cake to reveal coloured sponge or popping balloons which release pink or blue confetti.
Now, professional firework displays have become the trendy way to gender reveal!
Couples ask the nurse conducting the scan to write down the gender of their baby and put it in an envelope, which they then give to the fireworks company. The firework team then make this into a display using the corresponding gender colours.
It is the new, effective and memorable way of showcasing the gender.
