Hi everybody,
my friend is pregnant and she needs to have a exam that you can listen the baby's heart. But cannot be ultrasound because she already had one a week ago. Somebody could help me with question?

It's a fetal heartbeat monitor. It looks like a microphone and the doctor just rolls it around on the belly to listen to the heartbeat

Hi they shoulda told her/u that at the ultrascan. I had a sheet from my midwife telling me what happens every so many weeks. Also they always ask any questions so why didnt she/u ask?
