Pinard Horn, Stethoscope, Fetoscope; Perfect gift for a Midwife or Student Midwife
One end of the horn is held against the pregnant woman's belly, while the doctor, nurse, or midwife listens through the other end. Pinard horn may be used to determine the position of the fetus. Pinard horn is more precise than a Doppler ultrasound for this purpose. A Doppler device detects a heart tone farther away from the location of origin. Pinard horn must be pressed to a location very close to the fetal heart in order to detect it, providing a more accurate indication of fetal position. A doctor, nurse, or midwife can also use palpation and auscultation to determine fetal position.
