New app lets you listen to your baby’s first heartbeat
It's available for free download from the app store now.
‘Shell - Baby’s First Heartbeat Listener’, the world’s first non-invasive prenatal monitor is now available for free download on the app store.
This long-anticipated pregnancy app aims to revolutionise prenatal care, allowing expectant parents to listen to the sound their unborn baby’s heartbeat. The app by Bellabeat uses a unique, advanced algorithm that captures sounds from inside the womb and isolates baby’s heartbeat without the use of Doppler technology.
It is non-invasive and claims to let mum-to-be hear her baby’s heartbeat simply, safely and naturally through the microphone of her phone when it’s placed against her tummy.The pregnancy app can be used standalone or with an add-on device designed to improve sound by up to 100%, currently sold out due to popular demand.
The Shell app allows the users to store an unlimited number of recordings, plus share with family and friends via messaging and social media making it a new and innovative way to deliver pregnancy news.
Gurgle’s Art Director and resident mum-to-be at 35 weeks pregnant tried Shell out for 10 minutes but didn’t manage to hear a heartbeat through the app, so we’d love to hear how you got on. Let us know by tweeting us @GurgleUK or on Facebook @GurgleUK.
