The 'Feeling your baby move is a sign that they are well' leaflet was developed by Tommy's and NHS England with support from other charities.
The leaflet contains clear messaging on reduced fetal movements consistent with national guidelines.
It aims to tackle the myths and untrue messaging that women are likely to experience in pregnancy around this topic, such as:
- the baby's movements slow down in the the third trimester because it runs out of room
- if the baby's has ten movements in a day it is fine
- women can't be checked at the weekend.
This leaflet was developed in partnership with NHS England as part of the Stillbirth Care Bundle.
The aim of the leaflet is to raise awareness of the importance of monitoring fetal movements and reporting reduced movements.
It is available as a pdf and as a Word document. The Word version allows you to personalise it with contact details relevant to your hospital or area.
