Prepare the AngelSounds Fetal Doppler for use. Plug the headset jack into the appropriate socket. Then plug one end of the recording cable into the appropriate socket on the fetal Doppler and the other end of the cable into your recording device. You can use a regular tape recorder or a computer as a recording device, depending upon your personal preference.
Prepare the abdomen. Put some sort of gel, water or oil over the entire area.
Move the transducer slowly around all areas of the abdomen as you search for the baby's heartbeat. You may hear a whooshing noise or just your own heartbeat at first. Keep trying until you hear a rapid heartbeat that may sound similar the sound a horse makes as it gallops. This is your baby's heartbeat.
Click record. Continue to record the sound for as long as you prefer, then click stop. Rewind and listen to the recording to make sure it was recorded to your liking before cleaning up.
Tips and warnings
- Although it may be possible to hear your unborn baby's heartbeat earlier, it is more not common to be able to hear a clear heartbeat until after 12 weeks of pregnancy, according to the AngelSounds Fetal Doppler manual.
- Newborn babies often love to listen to the sound of their mother's heartbeat. In addition to recording your unborn baby's heartbeat, consider also making a recording of your own heartbeat. You can then use your recording to calm or relax your newborn baby whenever she is fussy.
- The AngelSounds Fetal Doppler manual states that this device is not user-serviceable and should be only serviced by authorised personnel, if you experience any technical difficulties with the device.
