Can your belly button reveal your unborn baby’s gender?

One of the first things everyone asks a pregnant woman: Is it a boy or a girl? While most parents rely on modern technology to accurately determine the answer, it may be as simple as looking at your belly button to see if it is ‘smiling’ or ‘frowning’.

That’s according to Healthy Mummy community member Jess McLeod’s midwife during her recent check up. Or… maybe, well.. very likely, she is just pulling Jess’s leg.  Fact or ‘old wives tale’, it’s had the Healthy Mummy HQ pondering the question.

We have therefore asked some of our community members to share their experiences with us.
