I remember hearing the bambino’s heart beating for the first time and the amazing feeling of that immediate connection to the little life within. Of course after the first time you hear it, it becomes your GP or midwifes way of monitoring your baby’s wellbeing at each of your check-ups.
If you’re the type that likes to be in the know during your pregnancy or are prone to being a worrier, or just like hearing their heart beating on the regular, you can rent a BabySonic Doppler from Hi-Baby on a monthly basis.
It picks up your baby’s heart beat from as early as 10 weeks, has 3 heart rate processing modes, plus an audio output that enables you to connect it to headphones or an external recording device. I think it’s a pretty cool idea to have recordings of your baby’s heartbeat as a memento!
The fact that this little doppler number is waterproof means that it’s also one of the few that can be used for water births too and what’s good enough for midwives to use is good enough for me!
The BabySonic Doppler with Waterproof Probe is Â£29.95 per month to rent with a Â£5 delivery charge added to your first payment. The minimum rental period is 1 month.
