How does a Babywatcher pregnancy scan work?
The Babywatcher creates sound, just like any other ultrasound device. It’s pitched so high, that no one can hear it, not even your baby. This is why it’s called ultrasound. The Babywatcher transmits ultrasound and also receives it. Thanks to this scan, the Babywatcher is able to create images and this is what we know as an ultrasound. It has nothing to do with radiation like x-rays.
How safe is ultrasound?
It’s completely safe. Ultrasound has never caused any harm, even though the norm that sets the maximum intensity is a lot higher than it used to be and keeps increasing over the years.
Then why have norms in the first place?
Well the norms are there to prevent any possible risk. During lab tests on mice they found that there’s a risk of warming up tissue and too much heat can be dangerous. The norms help prevent this.
Does Babywatcher meet the standards?
Yes! We have all necessary certifications and we comply with the highest standards. We use sonar technology to make ultrasound of your baby. We obtain this technology from the company Sonosight Medical Co., Limited. They are in possession of a guarantee certificate from TÜV Rheinland. We also comply with all EU standards for health, safety and protection of our natural environment with our CE mark.
