    More likely shes fussy from the extra attention, strange people handling her than the test itself
    The volume is quite soft & only gets louder until there is a reaction from bub, same with the sound frequencies & they are very gradual increments. So shes not likely to have any ringing etc as the sound would have stopped once she reacted .

    Best practice is to have these screenings done so any deficiencies are picked up early usually making them easier to rectify.
