Parents are often eager to find out so that they can begin preparations…
A lot of parents like to know the gender of their child before it is born in order for them to prepare for the arrival. Some people like to decide on a name before birth, to buy clothes for their baby, and to decorate a room for their child.
It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it all depends on the parents-to-be.
It is a choice completely up to the parents and others should respect that.
