What should you do if you notice a decline in foetal movements?
It is always advisable to immediately contact your doctor if you feel that your baby’s movements have decreased.
If you are busy at work and have not paid attention to foetal movements, have carbohydrate rich food like chocolates or juices, lie down on your left and keep a watch for at least two hours. If you feel ten or more foetal movements during this time, there is no need to panic. However, continue to monitor the foetal movements for the next few days to ensure that your baby has resumed its normal pattern. And don’t forget to report this to your doctor.
