A new Israeli device still in development could allow pregnant women to check on the health of their baby using only their smartphones:

“The new development has one big advantage, which is the calming effect,” Meisner, head of the Obstetric Ultrasound Unit at Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikva, told Hadashot.

“Women sometimes don’t feel movement, call their doctor and are told to go to an emergency room. Here there’s the option to put a phone on her stomach and see her baby.” “The purpose is to use it only when necessary, when there’s anxiety,” Dr. Elazar Sonnenschein, co-founder of PulseNmore, told the TV station.
