Merry Pregnant Christmas - BabyBeat MommyDop Review and Giveaway!

I am so excited to share this product with you guys and this write up will be followed up with a video product review as well, just as soon as I can get it done! I do have a video of me listening to the heartbeat with it and I will include that! I was sent the BabyBeat MommyDop to review during this pregnancy and of course, I am so incredibly happy that I got this opportunity. I have used this product every single day and it is more reassuring than I could have ever imagined. I want to show you some product pictures and then I will talk your ear off.

MommyDop


http://smartmomma.com/images/T/mommydop.jpg



This is different from typical dopplers, in that it has a separate speaker base that can hold the doppler portion. I think this is a much cuter design! The MommyDop is specifically designed for moms to use at home and sells for $189.00. I know that seems high, but a high quality medical grade doppler will run you close to $400.00! Think of it this way, you can rent a BabyBeat doppler for $45.00 a month for 6 months of your pregnancy and pay $270.00 or you can purchase the MommyDop from them for only $189.00 and have something you can use with future pregnancies as well!

When you purchase a MommyDop, it comes to you in a cute box you can use to store it in, instructions, batteries, the doppler wand, the speaker base, the cord to attach the two pieces and a 60 gram tube of clear Aquasonic ultrasound gel. This tube of gel lasted me quite awhile and when I needed more, I bought some for $5.95 for 8.5 ounces! This will last me the rest of my pregnancy for sure!

I didn't start picking up the heartbeat with my MommyDop until around 12 weeks, which is when they say to expect to hear it. I of course, started trying around 9 weeks, but don't do this. It will only make you worry that something could be wrong if you cant find it! Ever since 12 weeks I have listened to my baby every day and it brings me a sense of calm. I am currently about to hit 19 weeks and I have only felt my baby move a handful of times. This freaks me out because I was able to feel my first at about 16 weeks and my second around 12 weeks. I check the heartbeat and I feel reassured that my baby is okay. This product is worth every single penny!

Here is a video of my baby's heartbeat. Fast forward to 1:40. It took awhile because apparently it DOES move around a ton, even if I can't feel it.



If you are not looking to buy and want to rent a doppler for a month or two until you can feel your baby move consistently, then be sure you rent from BabyBeat! Their dopplers are superb and there are incredible reviews on their website for the rentals.

BabyBeat Doppler with Display

This model(BB200) has the heartrate display(which I recommend getting! It would be really hard to try to count a heartbeat when you are all blissed out from hearing it!). A month to month rental is $45.00 and if you buy a 6 month rental it is only $35.00 a month. If you want to purchase this particular model it will cost you $549.00.

I highly recommend renting or buying from BabyBeat. Their Customer Service is phenomenal. If you choose to rent, it ships for free! You will know you are getting a high quality product when you shop through a reputable doppler company like BabyBeat, and not ebay.

Rent or purchase your very own unit right here.
