When Lynne Adams recently went in for an ultrasound, she casually asked about her baby's gender.

I was told by both (ultrasound sonographers) they weren't allowed to tell parents the gender of the baby anymore,
said Adams, a 45-year-old who lives in Newmarket.

I said, 'Since when?'

Adams had her first child just 13 months ago at Headwaters Health Care Centre in Orangeville.

Back then, ultrasound staff at the same hospital gave her the option of learning her baby's gender.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
