When to choose: It is generally recommended to start fetal heart rate monitoring in the third trimester (28 weeks), and it is best to monitor at least once a week in the third trimester.
Monitoring time: Each fetal heart rate monitoring lasts at least 20 minutes to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the data.
The posture should be correct: During fetal heart rate monitoring, pregnant women should adopt a lying posture to avoid excessive activity and compression of the abdomen.
Pay attention to relaxation: When performing fetal heart rate monitoring, pregnant women need to relax their bodies as much as possible and keep their emotions stable to ensure the accuracy of the monitored data.
Be vigilant: If a pregnant woman feels abnormal fetal movement or other discomfort, she should inform her doctor in time.
In short, fetal heart rate monitoring is one of the important means to ensure the safety of mothers and babies. When performing fetal heart rate monitoring, it is necessary to pay attention to the selection of timing, monitoring time, correct posture, and relaxation of the body to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the test results, and to detect and deal with any abnormalities as soon as possible.
