Thanks! I thought the same thing but wasn't sure what others do. I remember DD was powerful during contractions. It was so amazing to feel her kick and move.
Do you feel that the bebesounds was a better option than a regular stethoscope? I just got a similar kit from target for clearance just b/c I thought DD would enjoy listening. But if it can be a resource during birth...then score!
i agree with the PP that it is not against the UC philosophy to monitor during labor. If it helps you, then it is perfectly fine. And, i believe it is perfectly fine to use any instrument of your choice to monitor. it's entirely up to you!
personally, i didn't monitor, so i can't answer to that. but philosophically speaking, it is an individual choice.
