Could a smart phone application help women monitor their baby's movements in utero? Doctors and midwives know that many women can tell their baby is having difficulty in the womb if it slows or decreases it's movements. While most decreases in movement are not anything to be concerned about, occasionally this can be the first sign that a baby may be experiencing some difficulty. The App designed to monitor a baby's movements across a pregnancy is called 'My Baby's Movements' and is about to be tested across 27 Australian and New Zealand Maternity Hospitals.
