Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
The Fetal heart will begin to beat in the first trimester. Typically this cannot be heard with even a Doppler until between the 9 to 10 weeks of pregnancy
. Sometimes, it cannot be heard until between the 12 to 14 weeks of pregnancy. So, tell your Friend not to worry and she can just wait and take her medicines regularly and go for regular follow up.
