Maternova and Mommy Measure partnered to bring this obstetric measuring tape tracking pregnancy progress to market.
Fundal height (or symphysio-fundal height) is the distance from the top of the pubic bone to the top of the uterus. The measurement of this height is usually within 1-3 cm of the baby's gestational age in weeks-- though some literature does indicate that this measurement is most accurate in the second half of a pregnancy (after 20 weeks). The fundal height can be used to track the progress of a pregnancy in two-week intervals, to estimate gestational age, track fetal growth and the general health of the pregnancy.
Evidence in Nigeria indicates that the SFH (symphisio-fundal height) is helpful in identifying IUGR (intrauterine growth restriction) when the measurement is below expected and identifying multiples or polyhydramnios if the measurement is above expected.
This durable measuring tape has a measuring tape on one side in centimeters. On the other side are pictorial images of danger signs of pregnancy to show pregnant women.
