Top 8 Occasions for a Hearbeat Bear
The sound of a heartbeat is easily recognizable, but yet your own child’s is one that - over time - you will forget without realizing that you have forgotten. Pregnancy is magical, hard, intense, and empowering. It is a time that you will remember and forget all in the same moment. There are so many things that you think will stay with you, but are replaced by the latest milestone. Your baby’s heartbeat should not be one of these. My Baby’s Heartbeat Animals are a special gift that can be given on so many occasions - not only to record a heartbeat, but to record a song, message or other words to be kept forever.

If your partner is away from home often, stationed overseas, or working far away, a heartbeat animal is the perfect gift.
