The practice was observed after reinforcement through observation checklist. And also they were interviewed to identify the barriers which prevents them to motivate the mothers on this issue.
At the same time, it was regretful to know that many of the MPHWs had the opinion that the antenatal mothers need not learn about variations in fetal movement.
During the third visit, only 67% of the mothers monitored fetal movement regularly.
20% did not assess the fetal movement, since they were not aware of the importance.
