Your baby’s movements matter
Your baby will contine to move every day, right up until their birth.
You will start to feel your baby movements between 16 and 24 weeks of pregnancy, regardless of where your placenta lies.
Every baby is different. They have rest times and active times, just like newborns. It is easier to feel your baby’s movements when sitting quietly or laying on your side, especially in the evening.
If your baby’s movements stop or slow down, contact your maternity healthcare professional without delay. You are not wasting their time. It is important for your maternity healthcare professional to know if you’re concerned about your baby’s movements.
What you can do
If you notice your baby is moving less and less, or the movements are not as strong, contact your maternity healthcare professional without delay.
