My Fetal Doppler Isn't FDA Approved :/

I purchased a fetel doppler off ebay after losing my first child I needed something to ease my mind from worrying. After using the doppler for almost two weeks I find out its not fda approved. Now Im worried that I have caused a problem. I have added a link to the page that states that this product shouldnt be used in the US. Please leave your opinion!!

  • Ask your doctor about it. It's probably not harmful, just not as accurate as the one's our doctors use.

  • I would think that they just haven't gone after FDA approval and that if it is safe in other countries, why would it be unsafe here? But remember that dopplers should be used sparingly.
