‘Reds flags’ in antenatal care: Fetal movements and fetal growth

  • G.S. Gebhardt

Abstract

Poor fetal growth in late pregnancy is a very common cause of stillbirth or fetal distress during labour. It is associated with reduced fetal movements, which can be detected by the mother antenatally. A simple management protocol is suggested that can be implemented at any hospital that has access to basic ultrasound scanning and electronic fetal heart rate monitoring.
