Human resources like India, rural areas are more when compared to the cities. People in rural areas are not really concerned about their health, because of unavailability of hospitals in the nearby areas and also they need to travel long distance even for small injuries and routine checkups. Pregnant women from rural areas don’t do their regular checkups at the early stage of pregnancy. Routine checkups can avoid birth of handicapped children and also helps in reducing fetal mortality rate to a very large extent. in this system, , some vital parameters of pregnant women, like temperature, heartbeat rate and kicking are measured and are stored in a memory card. the mobile application can access this information. This system compares previous report and the present report and gives to the user in the form of graph.
