Health monitoring can be achieved by using different sensors for measuring the health parameters like heart rate, blood pressure, baby’s position, sleeping posture, number of steps, pulse, body temperature change. The problems such as preterm birth, cesarean deliveries, infections, sudden infant death syndrome, false alarms can be avoided using this system. The changes during pregnancy are position shifts, density changes, cervical mucus changes & cervical length becomes measurable and during labor, cervix changes include stages such as effacement, dilation, the baby moves through the birth canal, after birth and recovery. The cervix monitoring can be done by using dilation sensors where the fetal movements and uterine contractions can be measured which is useful for avoiding the risk of cesarean deliveries, preterm birth, or preterm labor. During labor, it is also very important to check the position of fetal head for birth, so deep neural networks are used for measuring the fetal head biometric parameters such as head circumference and biparietal diameter. Health monitoring sensors can be fitted in the wearable devices, so it becomes easy for pregnant women, her family and doctors to continuously track the report of her for avoiding any unnecessary complications.
