A new smartphone app allows mothers to listen to the heartbeat of their unborn child and keep track of their baby’s progress in the womb.
The Bellabeat Connected System includes a fetal heart-rate monitor and lets expectant mothers tune in to their baby’s heartbeat and record the sounds.
It also tracks important data about the progress of the baby, including heartbeats per minute, the number of times the baby kicks and the weight of the growing foetus.
The app also has the capabilities to track the mood of the soon-to-be mother by recording her feelings throughout pregnancy.
If the app detects a pattern emerging, such as symptoms pointing to the early signs of depression, the user is even encouraged to speak to a medical professional.
