The following tools are used during a pregnancy to determine development, health conditions and unexpected
disabilities of the fetus:
Ultrasound(also known as an ultrasound scran, sonogram or ultrasonography):
A screening procedure that uses sound waves to create a picture of internal body structures. So in this
case, the developing fetus.
Spot multiple fetuses(twins, triplets,etc.)
Find out the fetus' age, size, maturity and condition
Fetal Doppler(also known as fetal heartbeat monitor)
It is used to determine and and monitor the fetal health. Physicians use the tool after the twelth week
of pregnancy because by then the heart should be large enough. Positive results should be expected, normally a fetus' heart
beats somewhere between 110 and 160 beats per min. It works by sending low-level sound waves through the skin and tissue of
the mothers abdomen.
