A baby heartbeat monitor uses two crystals placed on the transducer (which will be pressed against the abdomen), one of which emits ultrasonic waves, and the other detects the waves. Essentially, the waves reach the moving tissue of the heart, and detect the movement of flesh, and bounce back with a slightly different tone. The tones are then amplified, so that whoever wishes to listen, can hear the sounds of an unborn baby.

There are many types of these monitors available through several different brands. Some of them are only allowed to be used in the doctors office, and others from the comfort of your home. These items are very common in the doctors office, and are becoming widely available at home at reasonable prices. Most parents use them to ensure there are no problems with the pregnancy, and perhaps brighten a dull day. For those individuals looking to purchase one for home use, you may benefit from general guidelines on how to use the product.

  • Apply a decent amount of the included gel on the abdomen
  • Place the transducer against the abdomen
  • Search for heartbeats (it will sound like hoof beats of a galloping horse)

These guidelines will be useful for all the different brands of monitors, as they all work the same way, and use the same technology. Of course, if you have any questions about the use of your monitor, be sure to look at the manual or ask your doctor. There may be a simple thing you are doing incorrectly that is creating false results.
