"Hear Your Unborn Baby's Heartbeat” Mashable

Shell is the ultimate prenatal device. It slides easily onto your phone and turns it into a baby heartbeat listener. Using groundbreaking innovation you can listen, record, and share clips of your baby’s heartbeat with loved ones and enhance your bonding experience.

Shell first of its kind, non-invasively captures sounds from the womb and isolates the heartbeat.

An Experience Unlike Any Other.

Shell is inspired by the Pinard horn, a centuries-old method used by midwives. Taking modern day developments, Shell brings you a safe and non-invasive way to hear your baby’s heartbeat without the use of ultrasound waves.

Making this major life event interactive, Shell provides a unique way to announce a pregnancy with recording and sharing features and also offers a way to keep your inner circle connected with your growing bundle of joy as it progresses toward birth.

The most recent addition to Shell is the kick-counter: an easy, non-invasive test that you can do at home to check your baby's well-being. The test helps you monitor your baby’s movement to alert you to any decreased activity, generally considered to be sign of potential problems.

Key features:
  • Find and listen to your baby’s heartbeat
  • Record and store an unlimited number of tracks
  • Share the recordings with loved ones
  • Enhance the bonding experience between you and your baby
  • Kick counter test

Key components:
  • Shell filters out ambient noise to accurately enable listening
  • Easy and safe to use.
  • Noninvasive technology enables you to safely use your Shell


App only works with the Shell accessory.

We like to ensure the safety of all moms and babies. Shell is safe to use but as a precaution, please place your phone in airplane mode.

Before using the Shell application take the device out of its case or cover in order to eliminate any false "beating" sounds.

For best results it is recommended to use Shell from week 30. In some instances the baby’s heartbeat can be heard even earlier.

Please note the Shell is NOT a medical device and is NOT intended to replace any medical advice given by a physician.

Shell is supported on the following iPhone devices: 5S, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, SE, 7 and 7 Plus.
