Listening to your baby’s heartbeat is a unique experience during your pregnancy. This is a special part of many pregnant women’s prenatal care appointments. You can listen to your baby’s heartbeat at doctor’s appointments, but you can also do so at home. Personal use of a foetal doppler (a type of ultrasound) is not recommended by medical professionals. There are, however, other ways to hear your baby’s heartbeat at home without using a doppler.
Listening to the baby’s heartbeat at home can provide reassurance between prenatal appointments for some families. Others see it as a way to bond with the baby. Children and partners frequently enjoy and anticipate this. Furthermore, even a small child can do it.
How to Hear to Your Baby’s Heartbeat
Here is a quick look at the most common healthcare tech devices that you can use to try to listen to your baby’s heartbeat during your most awaited pregnancy without a doppler.
- Mobile apps
- Pinard horn
Your doctor can also use medical tech devices, such as a fetal doppler or other available professional monitoring equipment like ultrasound.

The stethoscope or fetoscope is the simplest and least expensive option. The stethoscope is more widely available, but the fetoscope is designed specifically for listening to babies, making it easier to hear the heartbeat. Mobile apps are untrustworthy and may provide inaccurate information. However, if you are aware of this and are only using the app for entertainment purposes, you might enjoy trying one.
Many expectant parents find it reassuring to hear their baby’s heartbeat. You might want to try listening to your baby between prenatal care visits. Consult your practitioner about the safety as well as accuracy of the methods available so that you don’t add to your anxiety.
