What is a non-reassuring fetal heart rate tracing?

Babies tell us a lot. Monitoring a fetus by fetal hr, ultrasound or the expectant woman's perception of activity is important.

If a baby is near term and the testing is worrisome then obstetric specialists or subspecialists might deliver. But conditions can change. Plus every case is different.
