Can any Moms who have had midwives in the past tell me how early their midwife listened for a heartbeat, and with what? Do midwives use dopplers in early pregancy- and if so, how early?
My doctor wants to use a doppler on me at my next appointment but I have been hearing some concerning things about doppler use in early pregnancy.
How early will a fetoscope work? Are there any other alternatives to dopplers and how early do they work?
I am hoping I can find some good information to suggest an alternative to the doc (so I don't sound like I am just giving her a list of what not to do that she has to figure out how to work around).
