A must have for worriers
November 18, 2013
I am a natural worrier. This doppler has been a life saver day after day during my first pregnancy. If my thoughts start to wonder to things like "is he really in there", "the heart's still beating right?" and other anxiety driven fears that mothers often struggle with… I turn to the doppler. It's therapeutic as the sound of baby's heart is calming, and when baby moves, I can hear that as well. Up until about week 18, there were some days when it was difficult to pick up the heart beat, but I could always at least catch a quick few beats. Now that I'm reaching my 3rd trimester, as soon as the doppler touches my skin, baby's heart is heard loud and clear. I would recommend this to all moms for an at home doctor's office experience.
Pros:I can always hear baby's heartbeat, even if only for a few seconds (during 1st-2nd trimester). Later into the 2nd-3rd tri, the heart beat is always found and constantly heard.
