If you are unable to pick up a heartbeat with your fetal doppler, try not to panic. It could simply be that your baby is in a position that makes it difficult to detect the heartbeat, or that your baby is still too small to hear. It is important to wait a few days and try again. If you are still unable to detect a heartbeat after a few attempts, you should contact your healthcare provider for further advice. They may recommend that you come in for an ultrasound to confirm that everything is okay with your baby’s health.
