The aim of this article is to illustrate the history of fetal auscultation from the 19th century, when the fetus was considered as an object and the obstetrician as a “mechanic of the birth”, to the present age, when the fetus is a subject and the obstetricians have at their disposal all the means they need to confirm his well-being and to early diagnose his pathologies, even using prenatal telemedicine.
