Fetal Kick Counts

If the woman is in doubt about what constitutes DFM, we instruct her in the kick count method of assessing fetal activity and ask that she call her provider if she counts fewer than 10 kicks over two consecutive hours at times when the fetus is usually active and she is lying on her side (not supine) and focused upon counting. (from UTD)
< 10 kicks over 2 hours if
– fetus usually active
– mom laying on her side and focused on counting
