Pakistan is ranked highest in child birth fatalities. Intrauterine deaths and stillbirths are very frequent in rural areas of Pakistan where there are lack of proper medical facilities. There is an urgent need for a solution to capture the vitals and fetal condition of the pregnancy and communicate them to the remote consultants who can take immediate actions in order to avoid stillbirths. It is quite difficult for the parents to be able to travel from rural areas to the cities to see the doctors or have an ultrasound many times in a month to know how their unborn child is since the parents have to wait for the appointments. Complications may arise in between periods of appointments which the parents may be unaware of since the fetal condition is not being monitored on a regular basis. Fe Amaan is a wearable belt, which regularly monitors fetus’s health through the use of IoT sensor device which is to be placed on mother’s abdomen. The device captures the fetal heart rate and movement and sends it via Bluetooth to the mobile application. The data received will be analyzed and displayed, enabling the doctors to know about the health of the fetus. The main features of this system is to provide automated analysis of fetal health on regular basis without providing any harm to both the mother and the child. In case of anomalies in heart rates and movement patterns, this system generates timely alerts so that precautionary measure could be taken before it is too late. As the system makes remote monitoring of the fetus possible, it aims to reduce the high rate of intrauterine deaths and stillbirths in Pakistan. After the mass production, it will be used by lady health workers for monitoring the fetal conditions of expecting mothers residing in rural areas.
