one is by using Stethoscope- it can be identified mostly by experience... another is-  There are several different apps that you can purchase and download to your smartphone to listen to the heartbeat. Some will even allow you to record the sound of the heartbeat so you can play it..


are these apps safe to use?

hi dear, are you wanting to check for heartbeat because you are tensed about whether baby is safe or not in there? it is common to get such fears, and most moms may wonder, and are eagerly waiting for scan dates. only when the kick starts are we reassured. don't worry, you will start feeling those kicks soon, and baby is safe and sound and kicking in there! 😊

yes apps are safe but should not be used frequently as radiations are not good for fetus..
