How baby's monitored

There are different ways to monitor baby, including:

  • Pinard stethoscope, a type of ear trumpet put on your abdomen to let the midwife hear and count baby's heartbeat
  • Doppler, or sonicaid, a small portable machine using ultrasound through a small transmitter-receiver on your abdomen to pick up baby’s heartbeat.
  • Electronic Fetal Monitoring (EFM)
  • Telemetry
