Procedure: Foetal Movement Counting

Foetal movement counting is a popular method of foetal surveillance as it allows the mother to participate actively in the evaluation of her baby's health. Here the baby's movements are counted: either how long it takes for the baby to move 10 times or how many times the baby moves in a specified amount of time. These are then used as an indication of the baby's well being in the womb.
