  • I encourage you to avoid unnecessary exposure, you can choose a Fetoscope instead.

  • Unless you buy the kind the doctors use they will not work, I had bought one at Walmart and they do not work at all. Good luck though, I wish you the best!

  • I was just talking to my midwife about this and she said they are so hit and miss with how well they work that she actually doesnt recommend spending the money on them.

  • I rented one and found my baby's heartbeat at 9 weeks 6 days after 2 hours of searching! LOL It really came in handy when I had bleeding at 28 weeks, I listened to her heartbeat all the time!
