I am hearing that the Sklar Leff ($310) and Allen Series 10 ($120) fetoscopes, available at Cascade online, are excellent and can pick up tones as early as 13-14 weeks.

My favorite remedy for hemorrhage, besides placenta medicine, is cinnamon tincture.
Honey sticks are a great thing to have on hand - quick energy that digests well and doesn't come back up.
Motherwort tincture rocks for getting peace during prodromal, early labor, after cramping, and mothering in general.
Steep whatever you would put in a bath for yourself, comfrey and the like in a big pot on the stove. Buy a large pack of maxi pads.
Pour the a decent serving of the liquid into the maxi pads (keep adhesive backings on). Fold back up and put in their little wrapper and stick 'em in the freezer.
These were so soothing for the first week after the baby. It was like taking a mini-sitz bath and the initial temperature was so relieving.
