Baby Doppler Fetal Doppler: The Big Bang Theory: The Big Bear Precipitation

If you’re an expecting mother, I’m sure you’d like to hear your child’s heartbeat. This little miracle that you created with your loved one is right there in your belly, and there is nothing more comforting than listening to its heartbeat. In fact, the Big Bang Theory’s very own Howard and Bernadette, can attest to that.

The Big Bang Theory is a sitcom that revolves around an odd group of friends comprised of Sheldon Cooper, Leonard Hofstadter, Raj Koothrappali, Howard Wolowitz, Bernadette Rostenkowski, and Penny whose last name is not known. In the show, the friends go through life tackling social situations in, oftentimes, a comedic fashion and, even sometimes, profoundly. For those who have not already watched the show, be careful spoilers ahead!

Baby Doppler’s fetal doppler was recently aired on an episode of the Big Bang Theory. In the episode, Howard notices a box and asks Bernadette what it is, after which she says it is the fetal doppler used to monitor a baby’s heartbeat that Raj ordered for them. Howard and Bernadette wanted to wait to listen until Raj comes so that they can share the moment with him so “he can be part of the experience”. When Raj does arrive, he is ready to get started right away and excitedly wants to apply the ultrasound gel on Bernadette’s belly. Howard and Raj then sit around Bernadette on the couch and use the probe. After a bit of finagling, Howard was able to find their baby’s heartbeat no problem and what follows is magical, a “wow” moment. The trio are awe-struck for a few moments and amazed that they (Raj also feels he played a part) brought a life into this world. Although this is a fictional show that moment that is portrayed by the characters is very real. It’s a feeling that every pregnant mother feels: that there is another life inside of her at that very instant which she helped create and is now nurturing. In fact, many of our fetal doppler users talk about this very feeling when they review our product and how the fetal doppler makes this moment more real and tantalizing.

When this episode finally aired, we at Baby Doppler couldn’t help but smile. Firstly, a number of our staff are avid watchers of the show and for our product to be shown on it is just amazing. More importantly, it gives more exposure to the fetal doppler which we feel every expectant mother should have in their toolkit. Now millions of people will be able to see and somewhat experience what it feels like to hear a baby’s heartbeat. This really validates the work that we do here and gives us even more motivation to continue our mission: to help expectant mothers through their pregnancy journey.
