What is a Fetal Doppler and When Can I Use it?


Hi Mama - congrats on your new pregnancy!

Like many new mothers you might be looking for a way to connect with your baby before you start feeling them move in your belly. The NEEVA Fetal Doppler let’s you do just that, at home. You can’t bring your entire family to you ob-gyn, but you can let them hear your baby anywhere. 

 

What is a Fetal Doppler?

A fetal doppler is a hand-held ultrasound device that picks up on sound waves to listen to a fetal heartbeat. It can detect a baby’s heartbeat from around 8 to 10 weeks. 

The doppler lets you listen to your baby’s heartbeat from a really early stage for peace of mind. You can listen to your baby’s heartbeat from the comfort of your own home, so you can bond with your baby.


How does the NEEVA Fetal Doppler Work?

The NEEVA Fetal Doppler uses the same ultrasound technology that you encounter at your doctors office. The difference between the NEEVA Fetal Doppler and machine used at the doctor’s office is that the NEEVA Doppler uses weaker soundwaves and only transmits sounds. 


When Can I Start Using a Fetal Doppler?

During week 6 of your pregnancy the baby’s heart and circulatory system will form. Every woman’s body is different, so it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly when you’ll be able to hear your baby’s heartbeat. Most women report hearing the heartbeat between week 9 and 14, depending on the position of the baby in the womb.
