Monitoring of fetal and maternal well-being is extremely critical during pregnancy and during labor to reduce the occurrence of fetal and maternal distress in high risk pregnancies. There are many approaches to identify and quantify the real-time feto-maternal well-being by measuring physiological parameters viz. fetal movement, fetal temperature, fetal respiration rate, fetal kick count, fetal heart rate, maternal ECG acquired from both chest and abdomen region, uterine contraction, blood SpO2
