Listening to the Baby’s Heartbeat

  1. Always check the monitor on your own heartbeat first to make sure everything is connected and working properly. Refer to the FAQs if it isn?t before proceeding.
  2. We recommend the mother be in a reclining position for easiest detection of the baby’s heartbeat.
  3. Apply a generous amount of lubricating gel to the receiver and to the mother’s abdomen.
  4. Power on the unit with the On/Off/Volume dial. The indicator light will illuminate to indicate it is on.
  5. Hold the receiver to the mother’s heart first to hear how it sounds so it’s easier to distinguish from the baby.
  6. Then hold the receiver to the mother’s abdomen to listen for the baby’s heartbeat which should be much faster than mommy’s heartbeat.
  7. Move the monitor very very slowly to find the optimum placement based on the baby’s current position.
  8. After the heartbeat is detected, adjust the volume to a comfortable level and enjoy.
  9. After you are done listening, turn off the power and gently wipe the monitor clean but do not use cleaning agents or soap and water as this could damage the unit.

Location and Detection

Detection of the Baby’s Heart Rate is detectable 90% of the time after the 12th week gestation. Between 8 and 16 weeks it is possible to hear the heartbeat if conditions are perfect. After the 16th week you should have no problem finding the heartbeat. The gestational chart shows about where you should be able to find your baby’s heartbeat as it grows each week.

Early in the gestation period place the receiver near the middle of the abdomen above the pubic line but aiming down towards the pubic bone. Move the receiver slowly while searching because the heart is so small and the sound it makes so faint that it will be easy to miss hearing the heart if you move too quickly. Keep in mind that each mommy and baby is different so not being able to detect the heartbeat early isn’t a reason for concern. If you are not able to detect the baby within 10 minutes we recommend taking a break and trying again a few days later. However, if you are concerned about any issues relating to your pregnancy you should contact your healthcare provider for assistance. As the baby grows, the heartbeats become stronger and it will be easier for you to detect the sounds the baby makes. We recommend keeping the session to less than 10 minutes at a time. While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared this monitor for “continuous use” we recommend limited use in short intervals, infrequently and primarily after the first trimester. Make sure to continuously use plenty of lubricating gel to reduce the static caused by moving the probe around on the mother’s belly. We recommend the use of any of the following: Ultrasonic Gel, Aloe Vera, Personal Lubricant (KY), Baby Oil, Coconut Oil, Virgin Olive Oil or even Vaseline work well. DO NOT use colored gels or lotions as this will not adequately protect the probe from damage. By counting the heartbeats for one minute you will be able to determine the baby’s heart rate in beats per minute (BPM). Do this at least 3 times and average the results to get a more accurate reading. A baby’s normal heart rate should be between 120 and 180 BPM. The baby’s heart rate can vary based on the level of activity. Early in the pregnancy the baby’s heart rate will vary but as the baby matures the heart rate will become more consistent. If you detect a heart rate in the range of 60 to 100 BPM then you are most likely picking up the mother’s heartbeats. If you are concerned about the sounds you hear you should contact your healthcare provider for assistance. The Womb Music monitor is a listening system to hear the sounds your baby makes and is NOT a medical device and can not be used for diagnostic or medical purposes and is not to be used as a substitute for regular prenatal care by a licensed doctor.

Recording your Baby’s Heartbeat

We recommend and encourage you to record the sound of your baby’s heartbeat. What a wonderful sound to share with your family and friends. It would also be an amazing memory to share with your child as they grow older. To record from the AngelsSound monitor you first need to connect the Computer Recording Cable to the unit using the USB Mini plug and connect the other end to a recording device. Suitable recording devices would be your computer using the microphone jack or external recording equipment using the audio-in jack. Another way to get a recording is to connect the Womb Music monitor to an external audio speaker and then use your phone or tablet to record a live video of the experience. The video will pick up sound from the speaker as well as the visual experience of the mother & family members. What a wonderful memory to cherish. Then you can share the video on social media right from your phone.

Question: Can you record the heart beat?

Answer: Yes! it comes with a USB cable to connect to computer or what we did was connect it to our speaker and record that on our phones.

 

Question: Does this device emit any kind of waves whatsoever (like radio waves, microwaves, etc) that could be harmful after prolonged exposure?

Answer: Per the user guide “we recommend keeping the session to less than 10 minutes at a time. While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared this device for “continuous use” we recommend limited use in short intervals, infrequently and primarily after the first trimester.” It uses sound waves to detect the heartbeat similar to what a dolphin does to locate things in the water. Since the womb is a baby and a lot of water the principle is the same.

 

Question: Does this device display heartbeat on the monitor?

Answer: No it doesn’t but you can count the heartbeats. You will have to be in a very quiet place. Having the ability to hear my babies any time I want is amazing!

 

Question: Does this product come with Doppler gel?

Answer: The gel is not included but we do recommend that you use some sort of gel or all you will get is a bunch of static especially when you move the Doppler around on your belly. We recommend using either Aloe Vera, KY (or other personal lubricant) or something similar. Your experience will be best if you use a liberal amount of gel. We do however suggest that you don’t use colored gels or lotions.

Question: Hi, I was wondering if anyone has tried this on a twin pregnancy. I`ll buy it either way but just curious to know if you can hear both babies 🙂

Answer: Yes, it will work great but remember that twins are usually smaller developmentally than a single baby so it may take a few more weeks to reliably hear them.

 

Question: I’m currently 19 weeks and couldn’t hear anything. I’m not sure if we need the gel to hear the baby’s heart beat. Do I need the gel?

Answer: Yes, we recommend the gel because it makes the sound clearer and the movements less noisy. Any gel you have should work like Aloe Vera, KY, etc. or you can use gel specifically designed for this purpose. We also recommend that you first use it to listen to your own heartbeat which will then assure you that the device is working correctly and will give you a sense of how accurately you need to point it to hear the heart clearly. If you can hear your own heartbeat clearly then it’s simply a matter of time before you hear your baby.

PLEASE NOTE:

  1. The Fetal Heart Detector can be used above 16 weeks of pregnancy.
  2. The device must be in direct contact the pregnant mother’s skin and used with gel to help detect fetal heart rate.
  3. The Fetal Doppler is NOT a diagnostic device and you should consult your doctor if you have a concern.

    Great sound for the price you are paying. The recording capabilities works great. Just make sure you plug it into a microphone jack and not the normal laptop dual jack.

    Easy to use product, my wife loves it. Works best when body cream or lotion is applied to the skin first.

    Works well, sometimes you do struggle to find the heartbeat though. But once you’ve found it you will know and that’s awesome. Helped me be less paranoid
