Wearable pregnancy tracking device could prevent stillbirths


Women could soon have a constant window into their pregnancy, with start-up company Bloomlife given the green light to develop a wearable baby-tracking device for expectant mothers.

The device, to be pushed along the production line with the help of the Stillbirth Foundation Australia and PWC’s Open Innovation Program, will track foetal movement and activity, as well as contractions using existing monitoring technology.
