Monitoring the fetal heart rate with the old method
Posted Dec 02 2008 3:07am
Before sharing the great news of our new fetal heart monitor, we wanted to show you what the midwives have been using here at Nata clinic. They use a cone shaped device to put on the mothers stomache and then listen to the heart rate.Sr. Nurse Gaokwale is pictured above showing you how it works. This is extremely difficult and often ineffective especially when transporting mothers by ambulance to Gweta Hosptial. The road noise alone keeps the midwives from hearing a thing.
