Re posters comments. 'for that price can't go wrong!'. If majority reviews say it's useless!!. Doesn't matter what price it is whether £1 or £20 why waste your money!. As my grandma used to ssy 'If look after pennies your pounds will look after themselves!!'

So it matters to buy it for 7 pounds or 30 pounds. I dont buy Asda mushy peas for 9pence but vote it hot as it is a hot deal finder's website. There are people who said it worked. So whats the problem now?

I used one of these myself and apart from one set of earphones being a bit crackly, it worked well for me! So lovely to hear your baby before you've met them! ;)

Fair comment. Didnt vote cold. Just trying make point that price not only factor need consider when buying. In this case only 13 reviews split 50/50. Personally I wouldn't buy without researching more no matter what cost except it was can mushy peas!!!!

Grandma please... I don't get your quote!

It works after you are 28+ weeks and sounds different to proper doppler. As it is essentually a microphone so you can use one if have it :)
I would rather get a proper doppler though.

I had one of these with my son and used it from 14 weeks it was great
#8
I had one of these total rubbish in my opinion, Even in the later stages of pregnancy I could never get it to work. I hired a proper doppler from ebay loads better.
#9
didn't work for me at all, i got an angel sounds one from ebay and heard heartbeat from 10 weeks!

You can use the cardboard middle from a toilet roll. Midwives have a kind of wooden thing which works in same way. I listened to both of mine the toilet roll way.

My grandma was full of wise sayings as well. She always told me to add a teaspoon of vinegar to the rinse water after cleaning the windows. That way the neighbours would think you could afford to eat at the chip shop.

While the OH and I understood why people buy these, we also listened to what the professionals advised is on more than one occasion. Don't buy one, I'm not voting either way.
There are plenty of times that due to how the baby is laying you may not hear anything, this only leads to extra stress and undue worry when the majority of the time everything is fine. If you do buy one, only do so for a bit of fun.
#12
I borrowed on of these from a friend, who loved it and could find the heartbeat all the time - heard it myself. I tried it various times through my pregnancy and could never get it to work for me (we now have a very healthy 4 month old baby!) . So obviously works for some and not for others. Highly dependent on which way your baby is positioned at the time. Don't buy if you are a worrier, who will panic if you are unable to find a heartbeat. If you want some fun and won't stress if you can't find the heartbeat, get one and hope it works for you. Hearing the heartbeat is lovely. I'd pay £7 for the chance - you can always sell it on :)

Buy a cheap Littman stethascope & learn to use one, good for checking out your animals & little people too!

You must be kidding. Even the user guide says works after 28 weeks. We have exact one, my wife is 34 weeks, atill doesn't work. Useless rubbish.
#15
we heard daughter from about 14 weeks with my first pregnancy but with this one i couldn't find it until about 20 weeks. as others have said it totally depends on the position of baby but also on where the placenta is. i had posterior last time and have anterior this time which seriously affects the ability to find hb - even mw had trouble to start with.
good price
#16
p.s. it was also nice to be able to get a recording of dd in the womb using this plugged into the laptop
#17
please dont buy this! its rubbish!!

there is a reaosn they are so cheap on ebay and the reviews are so bad.

If you want to listen to your baby buy a real doppler, if its for novelty.

if you are ever in need of reasuraance ALWAYS see a midwife...you could just be listening to the placenta not the baby heartbeat!

if you want a recording just use your phone when the midwife listens in. x

[quote=topcat111]Anyone thinking of buying this should read this article
http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2009/nov/06/foetal-heart-monitors-risk

After reading that link,I still say with moderation and rational thinking it's worth to buy one. Obvious if the baby is moving less,I call the midwife and go to hospital. It needs experience to find the babys heartbeat.
The other thing it's obvious too that the mother and baby have different heartbeats so I don't know how you can mix it.

Finally,this device is not for medical use just to enjoy the pregnancy a little bit more. End of.

its very easy for someone untrained to be listening to the wrong thing and sadly some people would think its ok after listerning with one of these and not get checked out. these things should only ever be a novelty x
