Fetal Doppler Rental

How do I know which fetal doppler is right for me?

Another important question to consider before renting a fetal doppler is which one is right for you. For the most part, there are two different types of fetal dopplers on the market - regular and digital. A regular model is very basic and will allow you to hear your unborn baby's heartbeat (rentals range from $20 to $32 per month). The digital fetal doppler will also let you hear the heartbeat, but also offers the added benefit of a digital display of your baby's heartbeats per minute or BPM (rentals range from $45 to $49 per month). Deciding between the two is usually based purely on personal preference, except in the case of a multiple pregnancy. In this instance you will need a digital display to distinguish one baby from another.

Fetal dopplers come with either a 2 or 3 MHz probe. The 2 MHz (specialty probe) probes are generally better for overweight patients as its more concentrated ultrasound emission (beam) can pass more easily through the extra layers of fat surrounding the uterus. This concentrated, lower frequency beam also enables the fetal doppler to pick up the fetal heartbeat earlier in pregnancy and often enables expecting parents to listen in as early as 8 weeks into their pregnancy.

What else should I know?

Fetal dopplers are a wonderful way to begin bonding with your baby and have helped countless expecting parents ease their fears between monthly visits to their healthcare provider. If you choose to rent or purchase one, be sure your are doing it legally. You have enough to worry about preparing for the birth of your new baby to worry about possible fines from the FDA.

As a consumer, you should always do plenty of research before making a purchase. We understand this and would like to offer you our advice on the most reputable and customer-friendly, Internet-based fetal doppler company.
