This professional stethoscope with a two-sided chestpeice offers high accoustic sensitivety for superior performance. A traditional bell is combined with a diaphram allowing you to switch between the two depending on your preference. The diaphram side can be used to detect sounds from within the womb such as kicks and hiccups whereas the bell shaped chestpiece can be used to detect a fetal heartbeat. Our deluxe, dual head, fetal stethoscope may be used to detect a fetal heartbeat from about 24 weeks onward. Our Stethoscopes are backed by a 5 year warranty and are completely safe for mom and baby. Siblings and other family members may also enjoy listening in!

Listening to the Fetal Heart
Starting at around 24 weeks, the fetal heartbeat can sometimes be heard with our Tummy Scope. The heartbeat is best heard over the baby's back, which often seems firm when you feel around the uterus. It may be difficult to hear the fetal heart by stethoscope if the mother is overweight or if the placenta is on the front wall of the uterus.
PLEASE NOTE: The Tummy Scope is for entertainment purposes only. It is not a fetal doppler and is not a reliable method to monitor a baby's heartbeat. Every pregnancy is unique and hearing the fetal heartbeat will depend on many factors, such as the position of the baby and how she/he is situated in the womb. Babies change position in the womb so sounds may be easier to detect on some days more than others. You should always consult your physician or obstetrician with any questions or concerns regarding your pregnancy. Feel free to bring your stethoscope or fetal doppler along to a prenatal visit!
