Baby monitoring: A non-stress test is a way of checking on the baby. We listen to and record the fetal heart for 20-30 minutes. We are looking at the baseline heart rate and how the heart rate goes up or down. We are looking at this to see if the baby is getting enough oxygen or if there are other problems with how the baby is doing.
