Fetal heart rate / Antenatal care

Fetal heart rate

Nowadays, with the decline of delivery rate and the rise of stillbirth rate, it can be seen that the health of pregnant women and fetus needs real-time monitoring.
This pregnant woman's belly support belt is made of elastic material. It can be connected to mobile phones and watches. The data of prenatal examination of pregnant women will be recorded in it. By controlling the temperature of the elastic material can be adjusted to warm their abdomen.
Most importantly, the elastic material can feel the slight beat of the fetal heart rate. Pregnant women can check their baby's heartbeat at any time to make sure it is developing normally.
