Popular Loose Women presenter Stacey, who is expecting her third child, has revealed that she won't be using a home doppler for reassurance during her pregnancy.

The 29-year-old, who is expecting a baby with long-term partner Jow Swash, told Heart.co.uk that a lot has changed since she was pregnant with two sons, especially when it comes to gadgets aimed at parents.

Fetal dopplers are readily available to excited parents wanting to listen to their unborn baby's heartbeat without the need to go to the hospital. Stacey admitted that she wouldn't be using one this time around.

She said: "There's loads more new technology out, which is great but really scary. I don't think I could cope with that I would be such a paranoid mummy. They put these things on the babies and they measure their stats. I wouldn't know how to read that information and I think I would be paranoid the entire time."

Stacey continued: "There might be certain circumstances when you may need the apparatus and be taught properly how to use them, but for everyone to just to own one and expect to know how it works and what to do with it... It's such a hard time having a baby and it's really scary. You want to make sure things are OK all the time. Sometimes the way parents feel is taken advantage of."

In 2017, Kicks Count launched a campaign to regulate the sale of home dopplers on the consumer market. Due to the Ditch The Doppler campaign the Department of Health announced a Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) review of fetal dopplers; the review is ongoing. Our campaign has also led to retail giants Mothercare and Tesco discounting their sale. Find out more about why the use of dopplers at home is not recommended:
