Best Baby Heartbeat Monitors

Updated on March 8, 2011

Listening to your unborn child’s heart rate for the first time is a magical experience. With a baby heartbeat monitor, expectant parents can enjoy these thumping sensations even earlier in pregnancy. Home baby heartbeat monitors are similar to the heart rate Doppler monitors used by your OB/GYN at your doctor appointments. With a baby heartbeat monitor, parents can hear a constant heartbeat, hiccups, bumps and kicks, and whooshing sounds that may occur in the womb. While there are many baby heartbeat monitors on the market to choose from, not all are made equal. I have compiled a list of the best baby heartbeat monitors that deliver excellent results.

These baby heartbeat monitors can be used as early as the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

AngelSounds Baby Fetal Heart Doppler Monitor

The AngelSounds Baby Fetal Heart Doppler Monitor is an inexpensive option for producing your baby’s heart rate at home. Not only can you listen to your baby’s heartbeat, but parents can record and download the sound to their computer, e-mail, cell phone, I-pod, or MP3 player. This baby heartbeat monitor comes with the Doppler device, headphones, recording cable, 9 volt battery, and instructions.

Hi Bebe Fetal Doppler/Heart Rate Monitor

The Hi Bebe Fetal Doppler/Heart Rate Monitor is a unique device that allows parents to not only listen to their baby’s heart rate, but also see a clear LCD display of the heart rate on a screen. This baby heart monitor looks similar to the device used by your physician and delivers clear results, especially as you progress in your pregnancy. Only weighing a couple of pounds, the heart rate monitor is highly convenient and easy to transport, allowing friends and family to enjoy the first sounds of your unborn baby.

MedaSonics Handheld Fetal Doppler Ultrasound Stethoscope System

While more costly then other models of baby heartbeat monitors, the MediaSonics Handheld Fetal Doppler Ultrasound Stethoscope System is able to precisely check the fetal heartbeat in the earliest stages of pregnancy. Having this discreet screening allows parents who are uneasy about their pregnancy the calming effects of their baby’s healthy heartbeat. As one of the safest fetal Doppler monitors, this design is reliable and consistent. It includes a Doppler, stethoscope headset, belly gel, battery, and carrying case.
