You can’t have missed the story on this morning’s news about the Duchess of Cambridge’s possible slip of the tongue during a visit to Grimsby yesterday.

All of which has got us gossiping about the current trend of finding out the gender of a baby before it’s born. In many cases gone is the old notion of waiting until the baby is born to discover whether it’s a boy or a girl.
Most of us at w&h agree that with modern technology as it is, it’s far too tempting to find out whether an unborn baby is a boy or a girl (indeed, several of us have done just that!). But there are those who think the tradition of the gender surprise at a baby’s birth should remain unchanged.
