Hi everyone. Does anyone know how soon you can hear a baby's heartbeat with a fetoscope. Just wondering!

I believe it varies widely, from as early as about 16 weeks to as late as 22 weeks or so.  Certainly at least a month or two behind doppler.  Hope that helps!

My midwife couldn't find it with a fetoscope at 20 weeks, but heard it at the following appointment, at 25 weeks.
