5 Reasons Why Expecting Parents Should Have a Fetal Doppler
Whether you are a relative, close friend or an expecting parent yourself, pregnancy is a very exciting time for all! Looking for the perfect baby shower gift or a cool baby gadget for yourself has you reading many articles and blogs on all the baby-must-haves.
A Fetal Doppler baby monitor may just top what you have seen thus far!
Fetal Doppler devices, also known as Fetal Heart Monitors, allow moms-to-be to safely hear their baby’s heartbeats in the comfort of their own home, providing comfort and reassurance as early as 8 weeks into their pregnancy.
Hearing your baby develop throughout your pregnancy and sharing these moments with your partner is only one reason why choosing to purchase a Fetal Doppler device is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!
Here are 5 key reasons why you should consider a Fetal Doppler device.
1. Easy-to-use and portable
Fetal Doppler devices use ultrasound technology and ultrasonic gel to safety locate the baby’s heartbeat using a probe attached to the monitor. The battery-operated device sends ultrasound waves that pass through your skin and tissue and reflect your baby’s heartbeat. The ultrasonic gel helps to transmit the sound waves, producing a more accurate sound.
The ToronTek R88 Pocket Fetal Doppler device includes LCD digital display that provides three modes including real-time Fetal Heart Rate (FHR) display, averaged FHR display and manual display that allows you to view the fetal heart rate for an 8 beat period.
2. Reduces pregnancy anxiety
For expecting mothers, it is normal to experience anxiety during the early stages of your pregnancy as you begin to worry about your baby’s physical development and overall health.
Fetal Doppler devices help provide peace of mind in the comfort of your own home. These devices are especially great as they can detect your baby’s heartbeat as early as 8 weeks, before you can feel your baby’s first movements.
3. Involves your partner in your pregnancy
It is important for your partner to be actively involved in your pregnancy. As a mom-to-be, you are instantly connected to the little one in your belly, but for dads-to-be that connection may not occur until they physically meet your little one.
Using a Fetal Doppler can help create the early connection between dads-to-be and the baby. Especially for dads-to-be that are busy and cannot attend ultrasound appointments, Fetal Doppler devices are the perfect solution to helping involve dads-to-be in your pregnancy.
4. Helps siblings adjust to having a sibling
Although a new baby is an exciting and joyful time for expecting parents, the arrival of a new baby in the household can be challenging for firstborn siblings. It is common for expecting parents to feel anxious about how their firstborn may respond to the arrival of their new baby and how long it will take for them to adjust. Introducing a Fetal Doppler to siblings-to-be in the early stages of your baby’s life can help create an early bond and help reduce jealousy upon the arrival of your baby.
5. A memorable gift that will forever
The ToronTek R88 Handheld Fetal Doppler is not only easy-to-use, portable and waterproof, but it creates first bonds, allows you to save the recording of your baby’s heartbeat and can be used for all pregnancies.
Fetal Doppler’s are truly an all-in-one, forever lasting and reusable device that you are sure to love!
