Display Your Baby Recipe

Use a Fetal Doppler for a Thanksgiving Pregnancy Announcement

Did you know you can use your fetal doppler to announce your pregnancy? Fetal dopplers are at-home devices that you can use to detect your baby’s heartbeat while she’s still in the womb. It amplifies the noise through speakers and creates a bonding experience for the whole family.

After Thanksgiving dinner when your family is relaxing or chatting around the table, sneak off into another room. Lean back and use your fetal doppler to detect your baby’s heartbeat. When you have the heartbeat, call your family into the room and let them experience your baby for the first time. This is a memorable way to announce that you’re expecting and it allows people to instantly connect with their new family member.

Fetal dopplers start working around 12 weeks, which is when many are comfortable announcing their pregnancy. Many parents say the device creates a magical bonding experience and provides another layer of reassurance.
