    Default Dopplers

    I am thinking about buying a doppler, but are they worth the money? I am thinking of asking my midwife if I can hire one for a while...



    Are they as good as they make out?

    Hi Welshgirl,

    My obstetrican actually refuses to use a doppler; his reasoning is that you cannot always detect the heartbeat (even though movement may be felt at the time) and this can cause unnecessary worry.

    Hey Gwen,

    I hired a doppler around 11wks and for me I've found it well worth it. After 2 m/c I get very stressed about how this pg is progressing, and I also have a thyroid disease which more than likely caused the 2 m/c and it can be triggered off by stress. So worrying is a pretty bad thing in my case and being able to hear Kynan's HB occasionally has been very reassuring for me. HTH.
