How To Check Your Babyís Heart Beat
Fetal heart rate monitoring is one of the most important parts of prenatal care. By listening regularly to your babyís heart beat, you and your practitioner can ensure that your baby is in good health.
Whatís really exciting is that you can listen to your babyís heartbeat at home with a machine called a fetal doppler.
Itís a small, handheld device that picks up sound waves from your babyís heart and amplifies it, in the form of your babyís heartbeat.
Fetal dopplers are safe to use just make sure you buy one thatís FDA-approved.
Though ultrasound is safe for baby, you donít want to over do it and take any chances. So try to stick to no more than two or three ten minute exams each week.
