Cessation or reduction of fetal movements


Reduced or altered fetal movement can be assessed with the use of ultrasound of the fetus and a fetal heart rate trace. If the fetus is well grown, moving well, with normal amniotic fluid levels and fetal heart rate pattern the expectant mother can be reassured that the change in movements does not indicate any deterioration on the condition of the fetus.
