In many countries like India, there are more rural areas as compared to cities. In rural areas, due to the lack of medical facilities, people are not much concerned about their health. Even for a routine check-up, they need to travel a long distance. Pregnancy demands a routine check-up and women in rural areas don’t do their regular check-up at an early stage of pregnancy. A routine check-up can help in reducing fetal mortality rate and to identify and reduce risks (if any) for the mother and the baby. In this paper, the system allows the interaction of doctors with pregnant women through the mobile application. Some crucial parameters of pregnant women like heartbeat rate, blood pressure, temperature, and fetus movement (kicking) are measured and stored in the cloud. The android application can access this information. Whenever there is any fluctuation that happens from the normal value, an alert message is sent to the doctor’s mobile application. Hence, doctors can monitor the health of pregnant women. The purpose of this system is to record the parameters of the pregnant woman and deliver the recorded results to the doctor so that the routine health status of the pregnant woman can be monitored without going to the hospital.
