How does a heartbeat doppler work?
A heartbeat doppler device utilises ultrasound technology to amplify the sound of your baby’s heartbeat. It does this by sending sound waves through your skin and tissue to detect movement in the form of blood flow (such as blood moving through the baby’s heart arteries), which then causes the waves to be bounced back and amplified through the microphone and audio output of the fetal doppler. As a result, using a pregnancy doppler ultrasound allows you to listen to your baby’s heartbeat.
When you use an at-home fetal doppler, it’s important to know that you’ll also be hearing the heartbeat and blood flow of the parent carrying the baby. In fact, these sounds will be much louder than that of the baby, so it’s important to remember that your baby’s heartbeat will be much faster than yours.
If it’s your first time, using your heartbeat doppler with the guidance of your midwife or medical provider is a great way to ensure you’re able to identify the different sounds and listen for what you’re really after.
When can you hear the baby’s heartbeat with a doppler?
Typically, a baby’s heartbeat becomes audible using a pregnancy heartbeat monitor around the end of the first trimester, or at approximately 10 to 12 weeks of gestation.
It’s important to know that you – or your doctor – won’t always be able to hear a heartbeat before this. Some fetal heart rates are difficult to detect early on in pregnancy due to the size and positioning of the fetus inside the womb. In such instances, your doctor will use a transvaginal ultrasound to check your baby’s health instead of using a probe on your belly as per a fetal doppler ultrasound.
Other common occurrences that might impact your ability to listen to your baby when using a fetal heart monitor include user error, e.g., not enough pressure with the probe, inconsistent ultrasound gel application, poor body positioning, or moving the heartbeat doppler probe too quickly.
Different fetal heartbeat monitors will detect your baby’s heartbeat at different times. This is due to differences in the quality of ultrasound signal technology and the strength of the power supply between machines. All BabyHeart prenatal heartbeat monitors are medical grade and FDA approved. This means they’re used by the experts and are safe for home and clinical use.
If you’re excited to hear the sound of your baby’s heartbeat as soon as possible, all our dopplers – premium, standard, and advanced fetal heart rate doppler – can typically detect a heartbeat from 12 weeks of pregnancy. Because of this, they are used by many midwives, ob-gyns, and doctors. They are also a popular choice for many new parents.
Why is it a good idea to have a heartbeat doppler?
Having a heartbeat doppler at home has many benefits; being able to hear your baby’s heartbeat as they move is a truly special experience and a wonderful way to start to bond with your baby before their delivery earthside. A baby heart monitor allows you to do this from the convenience and privacy of your own home while waiting for your next doctor’s appointment.
A doppler machine lets you check in on your baby a few times a week. Sometimes, even just a quick listen to your baby adds so much wonder in being an expecting parent.
That said, it’s important to remember that using a heartbeat doppler should never replace proper medical examination. If you cannot feel your baby moving or have concerns about your baby’s heartbeat, seek emergency diagnosis and professional treatment immediately.
