Arrived quickly thanks to the seller everything works excellently
As long as you know where on your abdomen to place the probe (anywhere between pubic symphysis and the belly button) and be aware that it's only really possible to hear the heart beat after 15-16 weeks (as the baby has grown enough to now be out of the pelvis and heart beat is audible) and also be aware that the baby's heart beat is around 150 beats per minute and not around 70 (which is your own heart beat) then it's a great tool. Also, having the patience to slowly move the probe around to search for the tiny heart. As a doctor with knowledge of anatomy, I found this extremely easy to use and very reassuring before you can start feeling the baby move. It isn't as powerful as the ones we use in the hospital but it's definitely powerful enough to hear a strong fetal heartbeat. I discussed having a home doppler with my midwife and she says they do not recommend people get one as people typically do not know how to correctly use it. She told me some people place the probe near their own heart and claim they can hear the baby's heart beat.
So over all, use with caution! Excellent for the price paid, will continue to use it throughout pregnancy for reassurance. Would highly recommend in the right hands.
I bought this machine after two miscarriages, I wanted to be able to reassure myself all was ok. When I first got the machine it wouldn’t turn on but I was persistent and eventually it turned on! Heard baby’s heart beat at 13 weeks and was delighted with my purchase. Unfortunately over the following days the machine is very temperamental and sometimes just will not turn on leaving me more anxious than ever to hear the heartbeat. After an hour of trying this morning the machine will just not turn on, I’ve changed the batteries but unfortunately it makes no difference. Such a shame because when it works it’s fabulous!
In now 9 weeks pregnant and was conserned that if everything was healthy. so me and my partner said we'd buy this, it came pretty quick in the post and it is easy to use volume is loud and clear and we can hear our baby fine only thing is batteries not included and to take all plastic pieces off before use but it's a real handy tool.
Very good! Item well packed and working well. Fast Delivery
