'A.Pavithra', 'P.Latha'..

Abstract
BACKGROUND: The pattern of the baby’s Heart beat during labor is often good indicator of the baby’s well being. A normal heart rate suggest that the baby is receiving enough Oxygen from the mother’s Blood steam.
AIM: To compare the fetal heart rate in left lateral and right lateral position among antenatal mothers.
METHODOLOGY: A quantitative research approach was used to compare the fetal heart rate, total 60 pregnant women were selected by simple random sampling technique by lottery method. The investigator monitored fetal heart rate for 60 mothers both in left lateral and in right lateral position. Then, the data was compared between the left lateral and right lateral position among antenatal mothers.
RESULT:In left lateral position mean FHR is 139.98 and standard deviation is 54.79, in right lateral position mean FHR is 138.3 and standard deviation is 53.7 and correlation and coefficient of fetal heart rate in left lateral and right lateral position is negative correlation and coefficient r = - 0.0170
CONCLUSION: The study concluded that there is no statistical significant difference between fetal heart rate in left lateral and right lateral position of the antenatal mothers.

Key words: Fetal heart rate, left lateral position, right lateral position, antenatal mother.
