Is it normal for my baby’s movements to slow down as I get closer to my due date?

The answer is no, if you have any concerns about your baby’s movements at any point in the pregnancy, whether it’s a change in pattern or reduced movements, you must call you nearest maternity triage or assessment centre

A baby’s only direct link to the outside world is through its mother. Taking time each day to monitor your baby’s movements and getting to know your baby is vital. By setting aside time daily to feel your baby kick, roll or poke, you can bond with your bump and check on your baby’s health as well. 👶🏻🤰🏻🧸

There is no set number of normal movements! Your baby will have their own pattern of movements that you can get to know. A movement can be described as anything from a kick, flutter, poke or roll. Generally, you'll start to feel 'flutters' between 16 and 24 weeks pregnant. 😊

If you notice a change in the pattern of your baby’s movements or a reduction in movements, it is very important that you call your maternity triage right away!
