"It took some time and patience... but I found it... thank you for creating this cheap, awesome technology to use at home." - Niki
Category #1 in the USA and 101 other countries. Here's why...
Developed by parents like you (with expertise in sound engineering and app development) who wanted a trustworthy, safe and easy-to-use way to record our baby's heartbeat and other sounds - and keep a record of a quality that we hadn't been able to find before in other apps. It has been extensively tested on expectant mothers.
"I was skeptical at first but you can really hear the heart beat! Great app! Worth it." - Legretta
**** But honestly, does it actually work?? ****
Yes. We've sound-engineered ways to attempt to isolate the baby's sounds and using an advanced algorithm, amplify them making them easier to detect and hear.
It may take time to find, and depends on the position of your baby so you'll need to stick with it and be patient. When you do, our results are excellent. Results are best between 30-40 weeks as your baby is bigger and stronger.
We constantly improve our extensive tutorial and techniques to handhold you through - we even have a support group on Facebook so you can get help.
We want you to be happy with HMB and getting results can sometimes be difficult. If you are struggling DO contact us via support. We want to help you!

**** No Accessories Required ****
We use the internal microphone from your phone to attempt to listen and record your baby heartbeat.
**** Works Beautifully From 27 Weeks ****
It is possible (but less likely) to hear from as early as 16-20 weeks, best results are most often achieved as the baby gets larger.
**** How It Works ****
1. Hear My Baby, has been precisely engineered to listen to abdominal sounds, then record and amplify them.
2. It works best when baby is head down and their back is facing forwards.
3. Remove the case, be in a very quiet room and focus on your lower abdomen. Listen then Tap record.
4. Our simple recording management helps you to keep a record of your special moment
5. Take a selfie if you wish and share
6. We'll walk you through exactly how to get the best results
**** Easy Share Feature ****
Sharing is awesome you can opt to share via Facebook, Whats App, Instagram or email.
**** We Care About Your Privacy ****
We take your privacy and special moment seriously. You decide who sees or hears it and can delete it at any time.
**** Before you start... ****
You DO need to follow the instructions for HMB to work. A quiet room is critical for results as the mic is super sensitive in the heartbeat range. HMB doesn't fake the baby heartbeat or other sounds :)
Please Note: results are normally superb, however the recording may not work if your placenta is at the front of the tummy or the baby is in the wrong position.
**** Supported Phones ****
11, X, Xs, 8, 7, 7+, SE, 6s, 6s+, 6, 6+ 5c, 5s & 5. We don't support iPad.
**** Worried about safety? We are too! ***
HMB is safe but to be extra sure DO switch your iPhone to airplane mode. This is a precaution and automatically stops all cellular transmissions.
**** Is it a substitute for medical devices/support? ****
No - we wouldn't wish to claim otherwise. Under no circumstances is HMB a substitute for medical support - if you don't get a result it doesn't mean anything is wrong with your baby :)- Consult your doctor for any advice. We are NOT approved by the FDA or any other medical authority. This is not a medical device.
Please do check our T&Cs before downloading.

Ratings and Reviews
It does work, but only if you’re patient.
I purchased this app at 20 weeks pregnant, but couldn’t find anything until 32. But since I could detect my own heartbeat, I knew the app wasn’t a scam. You just have to realize you are in fact using your phone, not a professional medical instrument.
I’m having fraternal twins, so I have a posterior and anterior placenta. Which, as you can imagine, makes it harder to find the heartbeats. But I found two separate beats today, even though one was a little fuzzy.
The main difficulty is finding the heartbeat without the use of the speaker. I understand why it needs to be turned down, but it is hard to rely solely on the sound waves pictured on the screen to find the rhythmic pulse of a heartbeat. If the app could be developed to recognize the rhythm of a heartbeat and alert you that you’ve found it, that would be a huge improvement. But, I am not a programmer so I have no idea if that is possible or feasible. 🙂

Hi wwest253, thank you for the very interesting and helpful comments. We've pasted this on to our design team for consideration to see if there's anything we can do with your idea to include it in the app. Congratulations on having twins, and best of luck with your pregnancy! The HMB Team
BEWARE!!! THIS APP IS MANIPULATING A BABY’S HEARTBEAT
We were so excited to be pregnant but i couldn't be seen my my Dr till after the holidays so I bought this app for “REASSURANCE”! I found what I thought was a babys heartbeat and was happy and posted it! Hell even the BPM was at 156 ( typical baby heart rate) When i finally went into the Dr she discovered i did have a gestational sac but a baby never formed so I never had a forming baby! This app manipulates a babys heartbeat! I actually posted a recording of what ive been hearing for weeks on the facebook group, check it out!!! Sounds just like a babys heartbeat except there’s absolutely no baby, another mom used it when she wasn't even pregnant and she found a babys heartbeat another mom as taken tests, all are negative results but she also has found a babys heartbeat, its sad how we moms are getting false a manipulating sounds !!!Please MOMS do not use this app for peace of mind or for reassurance! If you are having an issue don’t hesitate for one second to see your provider or the nearest ER! DO NOT TRUST THIS APP OR ANY APP when it comes to your pregnancy or your health!
Trust medical testing, see your provider! Be excited for your pregnancy and excited about your visits to see your baby on ultrasound and a medical doppler! Best of luck to all you mommys and your sweet babies!!!

Hello SOFCC, thank you for your comment, and in the strongest possible terms we do not recommend downloading HMB for reassurance, and we make that clear in all our information, it is NOT a medical device. We also recommend trying the app only after 16 weeks and not before and best results around 27-30 weeks. To address the issue you raise - the recording you posted, which we've listened to, sounds like it is caused by the volume being too high and is a sound feedback loop (often appearing to have a high BPM - but we don't include a feature to measure this within the app). We recommend that the volume is placed at 20-30%. This is a common issue and may have been the cause of the other case you mention. We do provide advice on this in the instructions and in the FAQ (there is a section on 'MY SOFA HAS A HEARTBEAT!') which discusses this. To be clear, we do not manipulate anything within the app, if we did everyone would give us a 5* rating and perfect results, and that isn't the case and is why our rating is only 4/5. We do offer support to all our customers through the GET SUPPORT button and we're always happy to help and discuss any issues and help where we can. We're very sorry you've had a bad experience with the app, with best wishes, The HMB Team.
It works! No seriously
I’m 12 wks pregnant, & I was skeptical when I downloaded this app because I had been unsuccessful with finding my baby’s heartbeat using other free apps. I tried for about an hour at first, but couldn’t find baby at all. I didn’t get discouraged bc I knew baby was doing fine. I decided to take a break & try once more before bed. I found the heartbeat within 10 minutes on the second try! I can’t explain it, but I knew what it was instantly after hearing. I will say that one sign of successfully locating the heartbeat was seeing the steady rhythm being shown on the screen. If you don’t know what to listen for, look for that first and the sound will match! I also had a full bladder when I checked the second time so I think that helped. Don’t trust the free apps because I kept my phone on baby’s location and could not hear anything through them. This is the first time I’ve listened to a Facebook ad and paid for an app... ever lol. Also my first app review so it’s definitely worth it!
