Tools of My Trade #12

Listening to the Babes
Fetoscopes, pinard horns and dopplers all are ways that we can listen into the world of the baby.  They can give us insights and clues...if we truly listen.  There is more to listening than counting the rate and noting the rhythm of the heartbeat.  The subtle changes that can occur in labor, the overall atmosphere of the womb, locating the placenta.  Truly listening requires skill and patience both gathered through experience and time.
