* iPhone 5, 5S and 5C support was added
* TOP 10 US & UK App Stores! *
* The first and original baby heartbeat app now has a new look & feel, an upgraded sound engine, and exciting new features!

“A beautiful way for you and your partner to bond with the baby…” –

“My Baby's Beat” is a unique, state-of-the-art iPhone application that enables a bonding experience between you and your baby!
Using ONLY THE IPHONE'S MICROPHONE and simple headphones, you can listen to your baby’s heartbeat and movements.

You can even record & share with your friends via email or Facebook.

** TOP 25 in several other countries: Australia, Canada, Ireland, and more. **

This app supports:
* iPhone 5S,5C,5,4S,4,3GS
* iPad 2, 3, 4 & AIR models
* iPad Mini 1, 2
* It does NOT support iPod Touch, iPad 1

* “My Baby's Beat” was designed for weeks 30-40.
Some customers report success as early as week 20, but if you are not in weeks 30-40, keep in mind that the chances of success are low.

* We recommend switching your iPhone to airplane mode, to stop all mobile and Internet transmissions before using this app, just as a precaution to avoid cellular concerns that people have. (The app itself does not activate any iPhone features that emit waves of any kind. It only taps the microphone, “captures” abdominal sounds, and amplifies them.)

Our customers:

"...I was 35 weeks when I got the app and had no issues finding my LO's heartbeat or my own. I just watched the tutorial and it was easy.
It might help people if they try looking in the same area their doctors find the heartbeat...
I had tried using a $40 doppler from Babies R Us and couldn't find my heartbeat or the baby..."
(Flfishie – Apr 16, 2011 – US App Store)

"... it was so nice to hear, and even my midwife had a listen using the app and couldn't believe how it worked..."
(Zayn07 – Jun 2, 2011 – UK App Store)

"...As others have said it is a little hard to get the hang of using this app,
but once you get the hang of it it's great! Every time I use it, it becomes easier to locate my baby's heartbeat..."
(Armywife25f – Apr 29, 2011 – US App Store)

“…Found my baby's heartbeat – took a while but after lots of moving around I did eventually manage to find it. Found mine, my partner's and my dog's after too. Just for fun! :)”
(Nicinakis – Apr 3, 2011 – UK App Store)

"...Best app I've ever bought!! I wish I would have found it earlier in my pregnancy!..."
And to all you wte moms-to-be ... Yes, it really does work!!!!!!"
(OneHottMomma – May 21, 2011 – US App Store)

**********Be advised! **********

Customer Reviews

  • 11wks it works!

    by Kpbritt

    I was thrilled to hear my baby's heartbeat at 11wks! I think I'm going to use this all the time! Going to tell my sister about it that's 28wks!

  • Great App!

    by Boldizar

    Bought the App when I was 29 weeks along and found the heart beat pretty easy with out a problem. Truly amazing you can do this with an App now.

  • Heartbeat

    by Tina t nguyen

    I'm 20 weeks and I was able to heart our baby's heartbeat!! Works great!

  • Love it!

    by Mercymom

    I bought this app when three of my daughters/daughter in law were expecting last year. We just used it again for the fourth time. What fun! Be patient and take time to learn what you're hearing. It's not as clear as a Doppler, of course, but you can definitely hear the precious little heartbeat when you get it in the right spot.

  • No bad

    by Bradybw

    Need patience, but it works

  • Love it!!!!

    by Lochche

    I could hear baby's heart beat at 19 weeks. So happy it supports iPhone 5 now!!!! I had it on my old phone with other pregnancy but it never worked. Thought what the heck lets try again now that it has iPhone 5 support and sure enough it worked the first time I used it.

  • Tip/works on 5c

    by Cece Will

    In order to send via FB tw or email it has to connect to ur carriers service. That's y u have to take it off ✈️. It sends for me, I get a heart rate. I wish It would be able to tell the heart rate.

  • Pretty good!

    by Kelseyelsewhere

    It took a few tries but I was able to hear my baby's heartbeat at just over 25 weeks! Be patient and keep trying-it does work! It's not the clearest but you can definitely tell when you've found it. Haven't been able to send the recordings though, so minus one star.

  • Unbelievable

    by KMosley09

    My SIL used this when she was pregnant. I was skeptical. I figured I would give it a go this time, and to my surprise, it is not some pre-recorded trick. It is my baby's actual heartbeat!! I even thumped the mic to make sure, and it picked up the thumps. I heard <3beat at only 6.5 weeks. Highly recommend! Also, shared perfectly.

  • Works great! 11 weeks.

    by Kelly 313

    This app is so cool! I'm 11 weeks and I'm skinny enough to pick up the baby's heartbeat. I just have to push my phone into my lower abdomen while I'm laying flat and it works great. So worth the money, it's nice to just listen to the baby sometimes. Fantastic!

  • Great app! Wish it could tell you what the heart rate is!

    by Dc82assu

    It's a great app! I was able to listen to my son's heart on the first try! I'm 33 weeks and it was very easy! I imagine you probably have to be pretty advanced on your pregnancy to hear it though!

  • Cool app, but probably best to wait til 30 week mark!

    by Prf43014

    I am 24 weeks pregnant and bought this app to ease my mind despite the description for this app asks you not to... Lol, but after reading the reviews I thought maybe I could hear her this early. I first used it last night when my little girl wasn't kicking, then used it again today now that she's active. I couldn't find anything but small pulses that were rhythmic but too slow to be her heartbeat considering the doctor measures it at 147bpm. I look forward to trying this app in a few weeks when she's bigger and closer to the 30 week point, but I don't see how this app is strong enough to pick up baby's heartbeat in the 20-25 week period or anytime sooner like previous reviews stated.

  • Loved it

    by Cc 17 weeks

    I am 17 weeks and I can hear my babies heart beat just fine wish it was a little clearer to hear but still awesome... For those of you who say it don't work you obviously don't know how to use the app!!!

  • 7weeks

    by Lloydbaby

    Im 7 weeks today and was able to hear my babys heart beat clearly in order to share you take off of airplane mod you only have that on so the mic can pick up sounds better.

  • Very AWSOME

    by Kay4244

    This app works wonderfully! I am 21 weeks and hear my baby boys heart beat right away. $4.99 is so worth it compared to buying a doppler for $40 or more. This app put a large smile on my face and I can't wait to show my husband. Very pleased.

  • Love this app!

    by Jesus4All

    I was able to hear baby's heartbeat @ 19 weeks & I'm a fluffier woman so I was pleasantly surprised that it worked so well!

  • Great app!

    by Linzmae

    Only works for women further along but it's still nice to have for a reassurance when you're in between doctors visits!

  • Heartbeat

    by Tina t nguyen

    I'm 17 weeks and I was able to heart our baby's heartbeat!! Works great!

  • Great

    by Queenbbby

    It's not super clear but it does pick up the babies heartbeat!! So cool:)

  • Baby love

    by Diannah Reid

    Love the sound of my baby's heart beat.

  • Worst app EVER!!!

    by TNU3

    It picks up a "heartbeat" on any part of the body!!! Dumbest app ever. Don't waste your money!

  • Waste of money

    by lalaemilyyy

    Unless my knee has a heartbeat too, then this app is Pointless. Yeah, it picked up a heartbeat where the baby is, but it picked up one everywhere else too. Also very staticky.

  • Doesn't work

    by Ema- Mama

    I can't hear my baby's heartbeat. I can barely hear my own heartbeat. I want my money back.

  • Wish I hadn't spent my money on this...

    by Baconk

    Didn't work! I followed the directions very carefully to make sure I was doing it correctly. I know it's an app and I wasn't putting high hopes into this at all just thought it would be neat to hear baby when I felt like it. Read other great reviews.... Wish I knew how they got it to work! All I heard was static... Couldn't even hear my own heartbeat!

  • Terrible!!!

    by Nikki8510

    I am only 15 weeks but it wouldn't matter if u were further along it's pure static and I can't even hear my own over that !!! What a waste of money ! DO NOT BUY!!

  • Didn't work

    by Rmadd15

    30 weeks and couldn't get it to work. I can't even hear my own heartbeat with it

  • Does not work

    by Janda83

    I can not get this to work. Not even to find my own heartbeat. I'll wait and try again when I'm farther along (currently 18 weeks). If then it works, I will be happy to write a positive review. Until then, I will continue to be unhappy.

  • No funciona.

    by AnaSnapshot

    Yo no logro escuchar el latido de mi bebé, a mi no me funciono.

  • Good app

    by Brenda Griffin

    I love the way the app was designed but with my belly in the way when I go to find my baby I always seem to hit the menu button then "rate app" to where it stops in mid check. Please fix that so I don't easily keep swiping over to menu and accidentally hitting "rate app" or any other item..

  • Worthless

    by PrincessAboard

    I'm 37 wks and still can't hear beat. Most of my apple headphones state incompatible, so I went out and bought a regular pair. The sound I get from air, my heartbeat, n baby is all the same.

  • Awesome!!!

    by Edith Morales

    I love it, it's worth the $4.99. Just put your phone on airplane mode and with regular headphones and you'll be able to listen to your baby's heart beat. It took me a while because I'm a bit chubby but I'm 21 weeks and was able to hear it twice. It's so cool. I recommend it!!!

  • Great app

    by Sol Queiroga

    17 weeks and able to hear my baby heart many times !

  • Pretty cool app

    by Radio26

    I'm about 36 weeks and 2 days pregnant and this is the first time I was able to hear my daughters heart beat inside my tummy. Was pretty excited. My only thing is that it won't allow u to send it via email or message because of the fact the recording extents over the 30 second threshold. If you would allow for longer recording time to be sent I would have rated it a full five stars. Other then that, I think this app is pretty cool to have to listen to your little ones heart beating inside u! :) it does takes some practice though to figure out where to place your mic to hear her/his heart. But once u got it figured out it's pretty easy to record. ;)

  • Upset to have paid $ and rate any Star

    by MzVivi123

    Unable to share on anything. I get error message to remove from Airplane mode. I would also like to personalize each recording.

  • iPhone 5 c user

    by Laysonaustin13

    Very good I got the heart beat almost instantly and I'm only 16 weeks


    by Betsieone

    This is the worst app ever!! Don't buy it! I did it when I was 26 weeks, realize didn't work until 3rd trimester, now I have 31 weeks and still doesn't work. This is a waste of time and money! I couldn't believe I wasn't the only one until I read the reviews... If I have to rate 0 starts I will! Please reimburse my money! 4 dollars for nothing! Fake app!

  • Not easy to send

    by Belladkca

    I could only hear the beat after 35 weeks and I am using an iPad. I have to keep turning it upside down to send and then the keyboard blocks the send button. I just video record the beat at the docs office now. Oh and I just did the update after I wrote the above and have to change to a 1 star. Can't hear a thing now at all.

  • Excellent

    by Juan lopez

    (Currently 20 weeks) I was skeptical at first so the first thing I did was check my own heartbeat. Perfect. After about 20-30 minutes of searching my belly because my baby is still small I found it. Don't lose patience, I think it has a lot to do with the size of your baby and your body type. Remember it's only an iPhone and it's only really amplifying what it faintly hears so I think if it doesn't work right away keep trying as time goes on and the baby gets bigger.

  • Don't waste money !

    by martin barajas

    Not a very good app !! Don't waste money there are better apps !

  • Crap

    by Thebuffy21

    Not worth even one star. Won't even pick up my heartbeat. Guess we are all the living dead from what this app shows!!

  • Update is awful

    by Jewelz5674

    Cannot hear anything

  • Good app


    This app does work good. Just have to wait until ur about 30weeks. I just heard it. Mic was right under the belly button i could hear the baby heartbeat. Be patient it does work but its 3rd trimester!!

  • Works great

    by LarBell4111

    I think why most people are having problems (from reading the reviews ) make sure you turn on airplane mode and have powered headphones, I used my headset plugged in the e box... I can't hear my baby yet cause I'm too early but I can hear my own heart beat clear as day. Just have to find it

  • Doesn't work

    by Sarahlc214

    I can't believe they charged for this. Junk, absolutely doesn't work. First the headphones with a mic aren't compatible, then I got headphones that are and it still doesn't work. Tried it at 12 weeks and now again at 28 weeks - nada. Don't waste your time or money on this app!

  • Want my money back

    by Angie0979

    I am 21 weeks and can't pick up even my own heartbeat much less the baby. This doesn't work with 5s cause of headphone placement. I need a refund!

  • Terrible!

    by BostonDad14

    Flat out does not work.

  • Works great!!

    by Kdorantes

    Bought this app when I was about 12 weeks and realized that it was meant to be for women in their third trimester. I tried an tried and wouldn't work. Now I am 27 weeks, just starting my third trimester and it worked! I cant believe I actually got to hear my baby's heartbeat laying in my own bed! I will definitely be gifting this to my also pregnant sister when she is in this stage! :)

  • Worst

    by Freitasde30

    Waisting money!!! Do not work in iphone 4,5. I do not recommend. And till now, no refunds.


    by kwilkswagg

    This is my most favorite app on my cell phone!! It's amazing and worth every penny:)

  • Doesn't work

    by Sunniegirl1133

    At 38 weeks I can't hear anything not even my own heartbeat.

  • Good App

    by Tahloulah

    Downloaded toward the end of my 2nd trimester and had a hard time finding the heartbeat every time, but just like its recommended, the heartbeat is much more noticeable in the 3rd trimester! I love that you can save and send recordings, too! The only con is that it can be very static-y at times.

  • Awesome!!

    by Mikala1120

    I bought the app hoping I might get lucky and hear the baby early. I just turned 18 weeks, and I have been using the app for about 2 weeks and can hear the baby perfectly! Love this app! I was worried it wouldn't work at first because it says works for pregnant moms 30-40 weeks, but with patience and a lot of moving the first time I found it!

  • Don't waste your money

    by Pinkpixsey

    Doesn't work at all. I'm 17 weeks and can't even pick up my own heartbeat. Would love my money back very disappointed !!!

  • Awful

    by Angelfyre032

    At 22 weeks I still hear nothing but static. Can't even find my own heartbeat. Definitely a waste of money spent!!

  • Doesn't work with iPhone 5!

    by Star1232323

    By the time the update comes ill have my baby!!

  • Does not work!

    by Upset mommy to be!

    Wish they would tell you it doesn't work for iPhone5! Couldn't hear anything! Not even my own heartbeat. What a waist!

  • Suuuucks

    by Appcraper

    Don't waste your time, money, or energy. This app is horrible. There is a reason these apps can not be found in abundance in the App Store. They don't work. Highway (in this case) App Store robbery. It's better to get a Doppler. Getting this app is comparable to purchasing an app to make your husband perfect. Ha that will never happen. Peace out fellow Pregos.

  • iPhone 5?!

    by cgee3

    Can't find my own heartbeat with this app. Wondering if it's because the headphones are plugged in right where the microphone is.

  • Does not work!

    by Lalacoco2468

    Total waste of money! Can't even find your own heart beat!

  • Worst!!!

    by Aross004

    This is the biggest waste of money! Does not work and if you have iphone5 u can't even put the microphone to your belly because the headphones go there!
