What You Need To Know About Fetal Doppler Units

By Bill Boor

For any woman, being a mother is a incredibly special experience, although it also can be quite worrying as well. During pregnancy, you would obviously like to know what condition your baby is in and that it is safe. It used to be that you’d have to wait until a doctor’s visit to listen to your baby’s heartbeat, but now in recent years this has changed with the creation of affordable home prenatal doppler devices.

With one of these units you’ll be able to hear your baby’s heartbeat as early as twelve weeks on in your pregnancy. To use a home fetal monitor, you will need to first apply ultrasound gel on your abdomen. Then you will take the sensor head from the device and start moving it across your belly until you get a good signal. Normally it takes several attempts before the user gets accustomed to using one of these gadgets, but as soon as you get the hang of it, you will discover that it is very simple to use.

There are many different kinds of fetal heartbeat monitors currently available for purchase. However, before you buy such a unit, you must be quite clear about what you’re looking for in your unit, as they can vary considerably by price, functions and top quality. For instance some of the more pricey monitors will have functions allowing you to record your baby’s heartbeat onto a CD or MP3 to share with good friends and family. You also have the option of renting the far more pricey unit, although in the event you decide to do this you should certainly think about getting renter’s insurance in case the unit is damaged or lost in the course of shipment.

How can you tell which prenatal monitor is the ideal for your needs? Your best bet might be to search for any monitor that has been accredited by the FDA. In general, top quality monitors operate with a frequency is 2 or 3 mghz. Furthermore, ensure that the sensor you choose is comfortable for you personally to work with and fits effortlessly within your hand. You may also want a unit with a LCD display screen, which makes recording and interpreting important facts. You might also want to ask your doctor or midwife for any suggestion about which unit they recommend, and talk to close friends about their experiences with various units.

By researching units carefully online and by reading or listening to many different recommendations, you should be able to discover a quality baby heart monitor which is appropriate for you personally.
