What is a Fetal Doppler?

The Fetal Doppler has been been called many different names, including fetal monitor, baby heartbeat monitor, baby heart doppler, and more. All of these names refer to the same device, the Fetal Doppler. Fetal dopplers have been used extensively in routine prenatal care for the last 30 years. Many scientific studies have been carried out on their use. No adverse effects to either mother or baby have ever been reported.

Our Fetal Doppler is similar or identical to the units used by doctors and midwives. It is manufactured in the US to the highest safety standards. The dopplers we rent and sell are CSA approved under the Health Canada Guidelines. Our doppler uses ultrasound technology which enables you to hear your baby’s heartbeat as early as eight to ten weeks of pregnancy.

How do Fetal Doppler Monitors Work?

The doppler issues low-frequency ultrasound waves which ‘bounce off’ tissue and blood in the body, and this information is translated into the sounds of baby’s heartbeat.

Fetal Dopplers differ from ultrasound. Fetal Dopplers use a power output which is hundreds of times lower than that of the ultrasound scanners used to show picture images of your baby.

If you have any questions about our fetal doppler, or if would like further information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We advise all of our customers to use this product in consultation with their physician, midwife, or health care provider. The Imex doppler units are classified as a Risk Class 2 device which is the lowest class of risk that requires manufacturer licensing. Dopplers are licensed under the Medical Devices Regulation Bureau of Canada.
Instructions for proper use of the device are provided to all customers.
