This professional stethoscope with a two-sided chestpeice offers high acoustic sensitivity for superior performance. A traditional bell is combined with a diaphragm allowing you to switch between the two depending on your preference. The diaphragm 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 can sometimes detect a fetal heartbeat from as early as 24 weeks. Our Stethoscopes are backed by a 5 year warranty and are completely safe for mom and baby. Siblings may also enjoy hearing their own heartbeats!

Listening to the Fetal Heart
Starting at around 24 weeks, the fetal heartbeat may be heard with a Tummy Scope. The heartbeat will be faint and 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 baby is in the wrong position, the mother is overweight or if the placenta is on the front wall of the uterus.
PLEASE NOTE: Every pregnancy is unique and hearing the fetal heartbeat with ease 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. Also, as the pregnancy progresses the baby's heartbeat will become easier to detect. You should always consult your physician or obstetrician with any questions or concerns regarding your pregnancy. Feel free to bring your stethoscope along to a prenatal visit!
