This is a fetal heartbeat monitor design. During pregnancy, parents enjoy talking to the fetus. The sweet action is full of anticipation for new life. This design hopes to record the communication between parents and fetuses autonomously through the product and the related APP, the record of which can be offered as gift of love and expectation to the baby when it grows up. The fetal heartbeat monitor is used as a carrier to record parents' talking to the fetus, because parents will hear the heartbeat of their baby while using the monitor, which shortens the distance between them. At this point parents tend to talk to their baby unintentionally, making the voice recording more fluid and natural. In this design, the fetal heartbeat monitor connected to an app can record the fetal heartbeat and parents’ words with the fetus. These sweet words can be preserved in a NFC for a long time. Then the NFC recording the parents' love and anticipation along with other mementos such as letters and photos will be given as a rite of passage gift to their child one day in future.
