'My Baby's Beat' is a new app that turns a smartphone into a fetal monitor so that expectant mothers and their partners can listen to their baby's heartbeat any time.

My Baby's Beat is a mobile app that helps users listen to the sound of their child's heartbeat. To use the app, pregnant women between 30 and 40 weeks must lie on their back and hold their phone over their stomach. Their smartphone will then act as a fetal monitor and pick up the sound of the baby's heartbeat. Users can then record these sounds and share them with loved ones.

The app is ideal for women who want to hear the sound of their baby's heartbeat anytime instead of waiting until their next appointment with a doctor.
