Wondering which Fetal Doppler is the best for use at home? There are a lot of choices on the market and after being in business for 12 years, we have seen everything.
Recently, a client said she decided to rent one of our Medical Grade Fetal Dopplers while researching the Sonoline B Fetal Dopplers that are available online to purchase. As a Nurse, she recognized the Nicolet Elite fetal dopplers we were offering. We only carry the exact same units used by Doctor’s and Midwives.
We talked about how the Sonoline dopplers were being sold for $69 at Walmart, so why rent from us for $45/month? A good comparison to start would be the value of the units. If a Sonoline can be sold for $100 it must not cost very much to manufacture. Our units are Made in the USA and cost upwards of $500 with a 3MHZ, waterproof probe. When it comes to something as important as your safety, you get what you pay for.
The units use Ultrasound technology to detect baby’s heartbeat (as early as 9 weeks) and are very sensitive. For this reason, we never ship our units in the mail where the risk of damage is greatest. We hand deliver these rentals or offer local pick up from our home office.

I’ve been hearing some buzz lately about a Fetal Doppler that has come on the market called the Sonoline or Sonoline B Fetal Doppler.
We are always looking to keep our inventory current with new products so I researched this particular Fetal Doppler. Selling for about $100 Canadian, it seemed like a great price.
As a Canadian business with a reputation for carrying top quality product my first concern about a unit that is so inexpensive is quality.
After some research online I found that this doppler is manufactured in China by a company called CONTEC. I was able to search for it in the Canadian Medical Device License registry. All medical products that are bought and sold in Canada require this Medical Device License. Canada uses this system to protect consumers against unsafe products. CONTEC and the Sonoline dopplers just recently (2015) got this license
At One Tiny Suitcase, our customers safety is of the utmost importance. We do not carry any products for sale or rent that are not approved for use in Canada.
As with most things it seems you get what you pay for. Our Medical Grade NICOLET Elite 100 fetal dopplers are the same ones selected and used by Doctors and Midwives in Canada. Retailing well over $600 each, our units are high quality dopplers that can detect baby’s heartbeat between 9-12 weeks.
