no, it's not a baby's trumpet!

it's a wooden stethoscope! i love that 'back in the day' products are being reinvented for the modern world, like this midwife's wooden stethoscope from bebe online. traditionally, midwives would use a similar wooden instrument to pick up the fetal heartbeat from around the 20 week mark. and world wide this practice is still happening. now we can bring this groovy product into our homes and let all of our loved ones, including anxious little siblings, have turns in getting to hear the growing baby inside. it's a cool product and i think i will definately have to get one of these when and if i am pregnant again. i can see it living in my handbag already!


  1. If we had one at home, it WOULD be used as trumpet! Looks great.

  2. I love this! wish it was around when I was pregnant with my first. I was so afraid I would loose her after it taking over 2 years to fall pregnant and a week off ivf. I know it would have lived in my handbag and on my tummy!

  3. oh hayley, what an emotional experience for you. she was definately worth the wait, keeley is just gorgeous! and monica, how funny, i bet it would be like that in a lot of homes! hehe xx
