Goal 3: to improve and promote good health.

Monitoring the fetal heart rate allows a health practitioner to determine fetal distress and positioning (e.g. lowered heart rate during contractions). This allows appropriate actions to be taken prior to or during birth, should the pregnancy be at risk for complications. This tool aims to reduce perinatal and maternal mortality by detecting intrauterine hypoxia, placental abruption, uterine rupture, or constriction of the umbilical cord.
