    I have no reason to suspect it's not - MW recommended it as well. I don't use it often now I feel her, but earlier on it was lovely to hear her every now and then. It was £10 from Ebay :)

    We were bought a dopler for Christmas so heard it at 7+2 and then have only heard it professionally once at a private scan at 16 weeks. There are concerns around the safety of dopler use, so it's important not to use them too often xx

    They dont tend to listen to the heartbeat in Scotland until the 22 week appointment I believe. I have mine next week so will be able to confirm that, but I'm sure she said at my 16 week appointment this was generally how it worked

    I'm in Scotland and I heard babies heartbeat today at my 16 week appointment and was the same last time round at my 16 week appointment. Was very brief today though as baby was having a party and kept disappearing really low down - midwife reckons a girl and a diva at that as boys are far calmer lol!!! Xx

    I heard it at 9 and half weeks on my Doppler at home, I asked MW to check I was getting it right when she came round. Mine was £20 from Amazon x

    Heard ours for the first time at 21+4 due to being admitted to hospital with PV bleed.

    Midwife checked at 22 week scan as part of routine. We are in Scotland though, so 22 weeks was really the first actual midwife appt, other than scans!!
