Make the pregnancy journey easier
Help ease anxiety for expectant mums and provide them with accurate, real-time information about their baby’s movement during pregnancy.
Welcome to bitbaby
bitbaby is a passive, at-home fetal movements monitoring system consisting of a comfortable wearable, which objectively records fetal movements via accelerometers that interact with an app which visually displays when fetal activity has been detected.
An array of sensors, mounted in a fabric garment, detect fetal movements via vibrations through the mother’s abdomen. Movement data is then presented to the mother in daily/weekly charts via their mobile device. Crucially, the mother’s movement doesn’t interfere with fetal movement detection.
What mums are saying
“If I have another child I hope Bitbaby is already in the market as I will definitely love to have that awareness during my pregnancy.”
I met Rachael in Dec 2020 when I learned about bitbaby and I was hooked on the idea. I was pregnant and had had quite a complicated start with multiple bleeding instances in the first trimester.
Being a curvy lady I found it difficult to feel the babies movements when they started and I always thought that a device to give me some certainty would be fabulous. Having met Rachael a few times then, discussing some of the preliminary steps to bring bitbaby to fruition, she enrolled me to try a movement awareness exercise.
This entailed filling a Google form every instance that I felt a baby movement. I was 30 weeks pregnant then. Unfortunately, before the exercise was finished my waters broke and I went into labour. I finished having an emergency C-section and as she was premature, my baby went to NICU. She did not come home with me for another month but thankfully she recovered to be a clever, happy (and a bit naughty :D) child.
Throughout the stressful hours that followed my waters breaking I found an immense source of calm in the movement awareness exercise. As I have been hyper aware of the baby and my body for the sake of the exercise, I knew I had not ignored any sign of distress. We do not know why my waters broke and I went into labour but at least I had some control in how to handle the situation by being calm and focused.
If I have another child I hope bitbaby is already in the market as I will definitely love to have that awareness during my pregnancy.
