New method for monitoring fetal heartbeat

Researchers have developed a technique to accurately isolate fetal heart sounds from background noise in acoustic recordings, allowing them to distinguish between different segments of the fetal heartbeat. This technique could potentially lead to non-invasive and inexpensive fetal monitoring that a mother could perform in her own home, and inform doctors about fetal health, making pregnancy safer.
