dc.description.abstract Monitoring fetal health early in pregnancy helps to avert possible fetal damage and even fetal death. Among various fetal monitoring techniques the invasive fetal scalp electrode method is the most accurate method at labor. However this method may cause risk to the baby if used for antepartum monitoring. The Non-invasive fetal ECG (NIFECG) is a simple and the next best method to extract fetal heart rate (FHR) before full term. NIFECG can extract the fetal morphology from the FECG signal which can aid in diagnosing fetal health ahead of delivery. This paper aims to locate the most optimum points to place the ECG electrodes on the maternal abdomen so as to get the best FECG signals. After reviewing few previous techniques, we proposed three schemes using a standard 12 lead ECG recorder. It was observed that the scheme 2 successfully displayed the average FHR as compared to the ultrasound report of a single subject. A further researching and experimental procedures are required in this abdominal ECG (aECG) placement electrode positioning schemes before a standardized electrode configuration which can be introduced in clinical practice. en_US
