Your baby's movements

Your baby moving is a sign that they are well. Movements can feel like anything from a flutter, a kick, a swish or roll.

From 16-24 weeks on you should feel the baby move more and more up until 32 weeks then stay roughly the same.

There is no set number of normal movements.  Your baby will have their own pattern of movements that you should get to know.

This pattern of movements will remain the same for your baby until birth – it is not true that babies move less as you get closer to your due date. You should feel the same pattern of movements for your baby right up until labour starts and during labour too.

Please contact Maternity Hub reception on ph (03) 4215 2060 if you are concerned about your babies movements.
