In 1895, Adolphe Pinard (1844–1934) a French obstetrician, designed an elegant, trumpet-shaped instrument for listening to babies in utero. This trumpet was made of wood and featured a single diameter opening drilled through the centre. Using this simple tool, the sound made by the fetal heart was efficiently transmitted to the listener’s ear.

This Kōwhai Pinard was hand turned by a local Wood Sculpture Geoff Irving.
