  • It’s not legal in Australia except for very specific gender linked illnesses (eg haemophilia). The costs are huge, because you’re going through IVF, plus it would almost certainly have to be overseas.

  • That’s so sad. Why can’t we just accept and love our babies, whether boy or girl?!?! It shouldn’t matter if you have 6 girls or 6 boys, just be grateful up you’ve been blessed with children. I don’t think this should be allowed, unless there is a gender specific genetic disease you’re avoiding

  • I’m not sure but if you have a medical reason for it I think you can in australia

  • Regardless of the amount of money you pay for someone who says that they can help with this, there are no 100% guarantees for the sex of your child, unless you adopt.

  • I never knew they could actually do this. I thought the male decides the gender! How could they possibly change it?

  • how did you go ?

  • cant help on this one, goodluck on finding your answers

  • I really have no idea. Its not something that I have ever thought about.

  • not sure about this :(

  • I’m not sure of this answer but you should be happy just as long as you have a healthy baby, male or female.

  • there are some good comments here

  • i have no idea. Why dont u just try your luck

  • im not to sure ether maybe america

  • maybe in america?? but not to sure, and dont know the cost

  • I’m pretty sure very very few countries do it and the ones that do it is somewhere around the $10000-$20000 mark each time u try and its not guaranteed to work. If u are determined for a specific gender of child have u considered adoption
