Rent a Fetal Doppler and Listen To Your Baby’s Heartbeat at Home
A fetal doppler heartbeat monitor is a handheld ultrasound device that allows you to hear your unborn baby’s heartbeat where and whenever you choose. No longer do you have to wait for your next doctor appointment to hear the amazing sound of your little one growing inside of you. Durable medical equipment rental supplier, Medical Towne, offers easy to use, obstetrician and midwife approved fetal dopplers for rent across the US.
This is a very exciting time in the world of technology! Home fetal heartbeat monitoring using a fetal doppler rental has become a nationwide trend as parents-to-be get to bond with their babies before they are even born. Now, as early as ten weeks, you can share the miracle of your baby with friends and family any time you wish!
Leave Your Worries Behind
Not only are fetal dopplers great for engagement with your baby, but they also provide peace of mind, particularly for those encountering a high risk pregnancy. In fact, the use of a fetal doppler during pregnancy is encouraged by obstetricians and midwives.
How’s It Work?
Home Fetal dopplers are 100% safe and easy to use. The Mayo Clinic states “In 30 years of regular use, no adverse effects have ever been demonstrated from ultrasound testing.” A fetal doppler detects small high frequency sound waves that are reflected off the fetal heart. Since high frequency sound waves do not travel readily through air, an ultrasound gel (included with your rental) is applied to the fetal doppler as well as the Mother’s belly. This substance allows the fetal doppler’s probe to detect the sound waves. The fetal doppler then processes the signals, and amplifies them making them audible through a speaker. Your baby’s heart rate will be displayed directly on an LCD screen, saving you from having to count and time the number of beats. Best of all, there is no limit to a fetal doppler’s use. You can listen to your baby’s heartbeat as often as you wish.

Frequently asked questions and answers the staff at Medical Towne has received regarding their fetal doppler rentals:
How do I distinguish my heartbeat from the baby’s?
“Your baby’s heartbeat is about twice as fast as your own. You can distinguish your heartbeat from your baby’s based on the heart rate. We suggest using the doppler on your chest to determine your heart rate, then try it on your abdomen. There is a distinct difference between your heart rate and sound than that of your babies’. When using the fetal doppler, you may also hear a “swishing” sound. The swishing is the sound of your blood flow.”
How many heartbeats per minute will I hear?
“The baby’s heartbeat is typically between 120 and 160 beats per minute, which is approximately twice as fast as your resting heart rate.”
