I continue to be more and more honored to be able to share products with you guys. This one takes the cake. Not because it is better than everything else, more expensive, or the most awesome thing in the whole wide world….but because it is something that relates to something very important to us mothers. Our babies and prenatal health.
Lately I’ve been asked by a lot of my subscribers where the best place to buy a fetal doppler is. I did not use a fetal doppler for my last two pregnancies. I probably would have for my second since it followed a very long drawn out (at least it felt like that to me) miscarriage, but instead I was lucky enough to have monthly ultrasounds done by my mother’s friend. So because I’d never researched them, I didn’t have an answer for that question.

I then set out to find a place that would be easy to access for all of my mamas. What I came across was Fetalharmony.com. Not only did Fetalharmony carry an array of fetal dopplers in every price range, but they also carried accessories, AND most if not all of their dopplers came with sonogram gel and batteries! Another thing that was important for me was shipping. I didn’t want to share a company with everyone where only some of them could access it, and some could not, but Fetalharmony also ships to not only US residents, but also to Canada, and Mexico.
After doing some more searching on their website and reading their About Us page, I just had to contact them for more information. Not only was Matt who co-owns the company with his wife (you know how I love family run businesses) quick to respond and extremely helpful and genuine, he also suggested not only sending me a fetal doppler to use, but also doing a GIVEAWAY for one of my subscribers as well! You guys know how much I love bringing such opportunities to you, so of course I jumped at the chance.
When the package came in the mail I was super excited. Fetalharmony sent me the Mediana F10 to try. When I opened the package, inside the box was the doppler, a tube of sonogram gel, batteries, and a nifty carrying case with strap.
Here are some of the features for this model from their site:

Now I just want to state, that I am not a medical professional and if you have any questions, concerns, anything, please go seek out professional advice from your doctor. A fetal doppler, though very amazing is also not to replace a trip to the doctor if there is concern. I am currently around 27 weeks pregnant, but received this when I was 25 weeks. If you cannot hear a heartbeat and you are less than 10 weeks along, please know that this can be normal, and again, call your doctor if you have concerns. The same goes for if you are further along as well. When I first tried out the doppler I knew baby girl was well and kicking, because well…she was literally kicking I had just had an ultrasound and doctor’s appointment the week before and at that appointment my doctor had difficulty finding her heartbeat due to the Fibroid tumor that I have on my left side, and her positioning, so my expectations were low. Surprisingly enough there she was though! After just two tries our living room was filled with the beautiful sound of her heartbeat at 140 BPM. It was seriously intoxicating.
Clear as day we could hear her heart beating, the swooshiness when she moved, and my kids were able to experience it with us. It was magical. I know I sound like such a mushy mush, but I can’t help it. Even though I feel and SEE her moving inside of me, it is a totally different feeling HEARING her as well. After my miscarriage with my second pregnancy which was planned, we weren’t ready to get pregnant so soon, but Wyatt surprised us not even 4 weeks after my D&C. I wasn’t ready emotionally to go through the waiting game again. If I hadn’t been given the opportunity to see him monthly, I know that this would have been a necessary step for my sanity. Fetalharmony gives you the ability to help ease your worries, by offering quality dopplers for affordable prices. Now I’m not saying that you should go buy one right now, because that’s not me and that’s not why I do these reviews. What I am saying is that if you have decided to buy a doppler, please check out Fetalharmony.com, because I think they have a wonderful selection, that range in prices, making it so that most anyone can afford one. I love my doppler and am so thankful that I got the chance to experience having one for this (my last) pregnancy. I have no complaints when it comes to the Mediana F10 and if you have the money, I suggest giving it a try :).
