Frequently Asked Questions

You can visit an Obstetrician and Gynecologist or a Pediatric cardiologist to monitor the fetal heart rate.

2. What are the problems with standard practices of Fetal Monitoring?

Standard fetal monitoring is usually used on everyone. However, this does not improve fetal or maternal outcome; it only tends to increase the cesarean rates. Fetoscope or Doppler is just as effective in predicting fetal well-being.

From the 12th week of the pregnancy. Everyone is different, so not finding your baby's heartbeat early isn't a reason to panic. Most mothers-to-be are able to hear the fetal heartbeat from the 14th week.

4. Are Dopplers safe to use?

Investigations have be end one on both the noise produced in utero and the heat produced by ultrasound, and no problems have ever been detected from its use in babies or mothers.
