Evaluation of fetal movements as an early labour admission test in low-risk pregnancies.

Author information

  • 1Ninewells Hospital & Medical School, Dundee, U.K.


Fetal movements were quantified in 182 low-risk women in early labour using the Hewlett-Packard M1350A (Boblingen, Germany) fetal heart rate monitor. There were no statistically significant differences in adverse intrapartum or neonatal outcomes detected by the fetal heart rate pattern or fetal movement profile. This study confirms the feasibility of obtaining, a measure of fetal movement in early labour but does not support its use as an admission test in low-risk pregnancies.
