Hearing an unborn baby's heartbeat for the first time is a beautiful and memorable experience, and the 'Bellabeat Shell' is bringing that out of the doctor's office and into the home. The device allows parents to listen to their unborn baby's heartbeat through the use of an app and a small device that attaches to most smartphones.
As opposed to an ultrasound, which requires specialized training and expensive equipment, the Bellabeat Shell is easy to use by anyone with a smartphone. The Shell itself is a small device that attaches to the base of a smartphone. It houses an acoustic horn, a sensitive microphone and a amplifier. The Shell connects to the Bellabeat app, allowing parents to record their child's heartbeat and even share it across social media.
