We started Hear My Baby after the birth of our son Charlie - that's him laughing at us in the picture.
Finding out we were going to be parents was the most exciting news we had ever received!
That euphoria didn't wear off (still hasn't!), but it wasn't long before it was matched with an equal level of anxiety.
In the early stages of the pregnancy, we went to the Emergency Department concerned by some bleeding. After an examination we were told that we had miscarried.
We were devastated.
Four days later we were back at the hospital so that the doctor could check that everything had completely passed without complication.
We got the surprise of our lives when the ultrasound showed a little heart flickering!
The sense of relief (and awe!) when we heard our beautiful baby boy’s heart beat for the first time was overwhelming.
This was at 7 weeks gestation.
Another 33 very anxious weeks to go.
Our midwife knew we were nervous wrecks and suggested we look into purchasing a doppler to use at home.
Having the peace of mind of being able to hear our baby's heart beat at home changed everything.
Since that time we've spent hundreds of hours researching, testing and consulting with expecting mothers, experienced midwifery staff and device manufacturers to bring you Australia's best value professional grade fetal heart rate dopplers for purchase or easy monthly hire.
We know you'll love hearing your baby!
Stephanie & Brendan.
