I CAN’T EVER FEEL MY BABY KICK. WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME?”

DR DEON VAN ZYL AN­SWERS

“Some women sim­ply struggle more than oth­ers. Some are extremely busy and only re­ally notice move­ments when they re­lax and fo­cus. Some­times the pla­centa ‘ab­sorbs’ a lot of the kicks, es­pe­cially early on, and it may be very dif­fi­cult to feel move­ments. Obe­sity can also make it more dif­fi­cult to feel move­ments. Or you might just not be far enough along to feel reg­u­lar move­ments yet. But if you haven’t felt any move­ment from around 22 weeks, visit your doctor/health­care provider as soon as pos­si­ble for a check-up.”
