Re: Fetal doppler...

I bought this one when I was pregnant. It's inexpensive and worked really well. I bought it when I was 15 weeks along. We had a little trouble finding the heartbeat the first couple of times we used it but were able to find it.

Re: Fetal doppler...

many companies offer rentals. i rented a hospital grade one for $25/mo. I was high risk and on bedrest so it was worth it for me. http://www.storkradio.com/ That is the one I used. I got the digital, but they offer less expensive models.

If your at all fluffy I hear there is horrible results. We used it at 30+ weeks with my ex's sister and we heard nothing!!!

ETA: Well just lots of static/ swooshing no HB

Re: Fetal doppler...

Not trying to cause problems, but you might want to read up on the possible effects of ultrasound on the fetus before using something like this on a continual basis during pregnancy.

We used no ultrasound/doppler during either of my pregnancies b/c I would rather be "safe than sorry". From what I have read, it seems that a small exposure to ultrasound is not too bad, but it is a cumulative effect - the more exposure during the pregnancy the more likely there is to be effects from it.

Do you have any links to back this? I am looking everywhere online and all I see is as long as it is FDA approved it is safe to use for ten min. about 2 times a week.
