There are several things they must do, but one of the more important steps
they must take is ensuring they are performing proper monitoring of the fetus.Failure to provide early monitoring can be problematic for the mother and
the baby. Understanding the importance of early monitoring can help a
mother ensure they are taking the steps to hold the doctor accountable
to their responsibilities.
Detailing Problems with the Fetus
You may not know it, but there are various issues that can occur while
the baby is still developing inside the mother. Monitoring can help to
identify those issues through various testing and allow the doctor to
remedy the situation as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, if early monitoring is not present, certain issues can go
unnoticed, such as a lack of oxygen to the fetus’ brain. If the
problem persists without any kind of remedy, it can cause the baby to
suffer long-term damage.

Detailing Problems with the Mother
Monitoring isn’t just for the fetus. It’s imperative to have
monitoring for the mother as well to better understand just what conditions
she has that can impact the baby. For instance, if the mother has high
blood pressure or if she is on certain medications, it can be dangerous
to the baby.
Of course, there can be several other issues that may be identified. Either
way, it’s imperative to ensuring the mother and baby are completely healthy.
