Baby makes perfect hand gesture during 20 week scan

Sonographer shocked

Most babies are spotted sucking their thumb or flailing around during an ultrasound scan.

But there’s always one that has to go one step further.



Meet the little one who during their 20 week scan performed a V-sign – a gesture associated with world peace.

The sonographer was understandably shocked saying that she’d never seen anything like it before.

And the sign was also a welcome to the baby’s parents – Ed and Dee Parsons who had been feeling upset about all the negative global events that were happening, as well as the death of someone they knew.

They have now nicknamed their little one ‘peace – baby’ and are considering the name Winston after Winston Churchill who coined the sign.
