Central fetal monitoring system offers many advantages

During labour we like to monitor the baby’s heart beat to ensure timely management of any variances that can occur.

Our central monitoring system is the very latest in fetal monitoring – in which the wellbeing of your baby is monitored both in the birth suite and at the midwives station during your labour. 

Your obstetrician also has continuous remote access and can monitor all your vital signs during labour. The monitor is wireless, which allows mothers to move about freely and they are even waterproof, so can be worn in the shower.
