    Hi ladies,

    this is my first pregnancy so excuse my lack of knowledge but I keep reading about a doppler that can hear the beans heartbeat. Can anyone explain what this is and where you find them? Also when abouts is the best time to start using it?

    Thanks

    It's a device that allows you to listen to the fetal heart rate. Some work as early as 10 weeks - haven't used one myself so not 100% sure!
