    Hi girls, this question has probably been asked a thousand times but has anybody got any recommendations as to which doppler to buy?

    I want the best one there is to detect hb earlier, price isnt a worry (within reason lol)

    Anybody?

    I was going to buy one but then thouht it would make me paranoid. Plus the one the doc used on me seemed like a good one only I couldnt tell which was the babies heart beat. Apparently some dont work till 28 weeks on dispite saying they work from 12. The angelsond one I was going for on ebay they are about £20 in total most come from china.

    If you dont mind paying the Hi-Bebe doppers are very well regarded.

    Avoid the Angelsounds available on eBay which say you dont need gel - they just dont work and lots of members here (inc me!) were ripped off by the same seller.

    I've got the Hi Bebe one (? the 200 model) and have found it to be good - I tried about a week and a couple of days ago and got a heartbeat although it sometimes take some time to find. Hope you hear yours early!

    My midwief recommended against a doppler.
    She said shes had loads of panic phone calls because babies have moved and mummies can no longer detect a heart beat.
    As i know i would panic, i decided not to get one BUT

    I WANT ONE

    I've ordered a Babypulse one from ebay. It says it can detect the heartbeat from 8-10 weeks.
