Effective fetal monitoring is an important guarantee for fetal health and early treatment. Fetal movement is one of critical indicators of fetal monitoring, which plays an important role in fetal health. Counting the number of fetal movement by pregnant women is a traditional method for long-term monitoring. However, there are many defects in pregnant women’s feeling count, which cannot meet the accurate requirements of modern perinatal medicine. With the rapid development of biological and electronic technology, various sensors are used to probe the fetal dynamic monitoring, but not on fetal movement. This research proposes a monitoring method for fetal movement via three electrodes. Briefly: first, three electrodes are used to extract electrical signals in the abdomen of pregnant women; second, these signals are amplified and filtered; third, A/D converter with microprocessor is used to make analog digital conversion, which can be stored in the SD card under the control of the microprocessor; finally, the SD card data are processed by computer software and the fetal movement information is analyzed.
