Is the fetal Doppler measurement reliable?

Posted by Afterpay Afterpay on

Typically, fetal Doppler measurements are reliable but there are some factors that could cause the measurement to read improperly including:
  • Smoking tobacco products.
  • Drinking large amounts of caffeine.
  • Extra noises, such as the mother's heartbeat or stomach rumbling, can mask the signals.
  • Sleep patterns.
  • Baby movement.
