Many times I would've wished for one of these but remember not being able to locate the heartbeat when you check might panic you more! Great price though so voted hot.
These are rubbish compared to the angel sounds. I found my son's heartbeat at 12 weeks on the angel sounds. You need to be careful not to get the placenta sound mixed up with the actual heatbeat. Great price of you are 20 weeks+. x
I *think* these use a microphone rather than doppler / ultrasound like the Angel Sounds does so they just amplify any sound they find. I believe a doppler are the same sort that midwives use. We paid £18 for the Angel Sounds - worth the extra £10 in my opinion.
Midwife warned me against these. An expectant mum who's baby seemed to be moving a bit less, felt so reassured by hearing baby's heartbeat, despite not knowing whether the heartbeat was the correct speed. (A high heartbeat can indicate a baby in distress etc) that she did not contact her midwife, until she had a routine appointment. Her baby died. If she had not had one of these she would have sought advice much sooner.
I had an angel sounds with dd5, what a load of rubbish. I would just not bother, it's not very long before you can 'feel' your baby move.

These are a bad idea, when you can't locate the heartbeat it's going to cause so much unnecessary distress and as a someone who has worked in obstetrics there are times that baby jiggles around and doesn't present an opportunity to get the ultrasound to work well and there's nothing wrong with the baby itself. I think these items are more trouble than they're worth.
These will only make you BP go up.......(if you are unable to locate heartbeats).
The cardboard middle from a toilet roll works fine if you don't feel like ordering this gadget. Midwives have always used a very similar tube thing made of wood.
I would aggree with those saying be cautious with one of these or anything similar. If you are not trained to understand the different patterns and sounds of the heart beat you could be falsely reassured. Always get a midwife to check your baby.

Amen to that. Having had two kids that both needed a bit of help to come into the world, we were also told not to use these devices. A regular heartbeat is actually a bad thing, it needs to go up and down at regular intervals (every twenty minutes or so if I remember correctly). A proper monitor would log these 'accelerations'.

Strictly speaking it's a good deal, but I won't vote as I think it's a bad thing to buy.

This product increases avoidable deaths in babies.
Shame on you OP, a truly sick thing to post
Any good for listening through walls ?
I was also advised against one of these (of any brand). You can't be reassured by a heartbeat, a heartbeat can be very telling by it's speed. If you're worried and need piece of mind, go to your doctor / midwife / drop in centre. They will usually scan you too so you can see the baby (that's what happened when I had a scare early in pregnancy). Far better, qualified piece of mind.
we use one of these types of devices purely to just listen (it's quite nice as a father to be able to hear the baby when you cant feel it move like the mother does) but we are also understanding that if you can't hear it it doesn't mean there's a problem, just the baby is not in the right position.

As long as you go along with this train of thought when you don't hear the same beat or nothing at all then you'll be fine.

To call the OP sick is a bit much and uncalled for in my opinion. No shame required.

It's a listening device, not a medial device and should be treated as such
These are crap, we used one and couldn't hear anything, rented a doppler monitor off Ebay instead, much better.
reviews are bad
Don't waste your money. Spend a little bit more on an Angel Sounds doppler monitor instead. And as many have said, don't rely on them, if you think there's a problem see your midwife.
