Enchanting Pregnancy Keepsake: Midwife's Wooden Stethescope
No sound on the planet rivals the galloping horses sound you hear in your unborn baby's heartbeat for the first time. When I came across this Midwife's Wooden Stethescope from Natursutten, I thought it would make a compelling and original gift for expecting moms and dads. Starting at around the 20 week mark, this stethoscope may be used to listen to baby's fetal heartbeat. Here's more information about this enchanting device:
"A midwife's stethoscope is used by midwives to listen to fetal heartbeat during pregnancy. Our midwife's stethoscope is made in Denmark by Natursutten of smooth Scandinavian Beech wood, and can be used in the comfort of your home to allow family members to listen to your unborn baby's heartbeat without the need for batteries, radio waves or expensive machines.
Originally introduced in France in the early 19th century, our wooden midwife's stethoscope has a unique bell shape that amplifies the heartbeat of an unborn fetus. Still in use today by midwives all over the world including the United States, Canada and Europe, a wooden midwife's stethoscope can be used to listen to your baby's heartbeat starting around the 20th week of pregnancy."
This would make an amazing gift moms and dads will always cherish, and one they will be able to hand down for generations. This priceless heirloom also costs only $39.95.
