    I was so pooped agree giving birth to ds that I didn't go and watch the docs preform the healthy hearing test. Can someone who did watch tell me what they do exactly??

    For my bub they waited until she was fast asleep. They put some pads on her which somehow recognized that she was hearing and responding to sound. Then they put some speakers over her ears. These were all hooked up to a computer which automatically played the test and then analyzed the result as a pass or fail.

    It was all very painless for her and she slept right through.

    Hope that helps!
