So as I research more into things about pregnancy and parenting I'm finding that there's alot of controversy about the safety of ultrasounds and Doppler monitors. I can't find anything conclusive for or against their safety, but alot of resources I trust are saying it's not worth the potential risks to use these tools unless indicated necessary.
So I'm trying to find more info and more exp,ert advise to determine where I stand on these tools. But for now I am going to say that I am only going to have one ultrasound with this pregnancy and try not to use any Doppler monitoring at any time. I will be requesting a fetoscope to listen to the heart beats.
So I fel like I need more info on this but for now I know for certain that no where is anyone saying that ultrasound or dopplers are risk free, even the sites saying they are safe, will not say they are risk free. So I'm going to keep researching but I'm wondering if anyone has any advise, articles, experiences, or anything to help me find the truth about this so I can keep my baby safe as I can.
Regrettably I have already had one Doppler used on me, but I hope it can be the last and with one ultrasound to check placenta position, and general health of the baby, and such I think that is enough risks for me.
Please, anyone have any more info on this?
