The ASKA Maternity Movement Bracelet is designed to help you become more conscious of your baby’s movement throughout the day, to realise what’s normal for you both and understand if anything is different.
Most women usually begin to feel their baby move between
16 and 24 weeks
of pregnancy. A baby’s movement can be described as anything from a kick, flutter, swish or roll. The type of movement may change as your pregnancy progresses. However, it’s important to note that there’s no set number of normal movements.
At about 26-28 weeks, you will notice that your baby is moving the loop on your bracelet roughly the same amount each day. When using the bracelet, you’re encouraged to take note of the times of day that the baby moves. This helps you to understand the patterns in your baby’s movement and to monitor if there are any changes in these patterns.
ASKA’s mission is to support the NHS and the Governments initiative to raise awareness of the importance of pregnant women reporting reduced foetal movement to clinical practitioners. ASKA also supports SANDS, the UK’s leading preventative still birth charity and recognises that monitoring baby movements is the first trigger in evaluating baby health in the third trimester. The charity aims to reduce still birth numbers and encourage expectant mothers to alert medical teams if they notice any changes in baby’s movements. This will highlight any problems that may require medical intervention.
