YouTube! There are tons of tutorials that may help you. If you do decide to buy one, bring it to your Dr's office. I did and my OB was more than happy to let me feel (listen?) around with their doppler AND mine. At first I was totally useless, haha, but he took my hand and guided it to the HB. That was REALLY helpful because I could feel the right amount of pressure to bear down with, the best way to "sweep" to find the baby, etc.

So... Technically, you already HAVE hired someone to use a doppler.
