Fetal Doppler monitors have been in use for over 50 years, but the use of the device has changed within the last two decades. The intended use was originally for healthcare professionals to monitor a baby’s heartbeat during prenatal check-ups, but since the rise in technology Fetal Doppler monitors have become very popular for personal use.

There are many other features to ToronTek-R88 Doppler monitors and benefits to using this device in general during your pregnancy. This article will clarify what they are and how you can begin enjoying your pregnancy with peace of mind and creating early bonds with your unborn baby.
What is a Fetal Doppler monitor?
A Fetal Doppler monitor is a hand-held portable device used to listen to your unborn baby’s heartbeat as easy as 12 weeks into your pregnancy. Similar to ultrasounds done by your health care professional, a Fetal Doppler monitor uses ultrasonic sound waves to retrieve your baby’s heartbeat.

Below are some reviews from expecting families who have used ToronTek-R88 Doppler.
My wife and I are very satisfied with your product. Being a couple that experienced a loss; it is very assuring for my wife to be able to hear the baby’s heartbeat whenever she wants. We were even able to hear the baby’s heartbeat at 10 weeks! Now that we’re almost at 20 weeks, it’s loud and clear!
Thank you for having such a thing available to the public. It’s a great piece of mind when I wasn’t too far along to be able to listen to the heartbeat and know okay this is real. And now that I am further along, when I’m not having a good day or haven’t felt it move too much in the day I can lay back and listen to it when I want without worrying that I haven’t felt it in a while. It’s still beating strong. As a first time mom best decision I made. Thank you, I love it!

My boyfriend and I love it as it gives us that sense of relief as we had a miscarriage last year at 9 weeks. We are now 19 weeks and so far everything has been going smoothly. ToronTek Doppler helps us out a lot as I was getting anxious anytime an appointment comes up. It also gives us a tremendous joy hearing our baby’s heartbeat thank you! We are both satisfied and this was our best purchase in pregnancy!
