My Baby's Movements (MBM) is a mobile phone program delivered through an interactive app and SMS. The program is designed to help women understand their baby's movements and encourages prompt contact with health care providers if any concerns arise. The study design used a stepped wedge cluster randomised controlled trial.

The MBM trial was completed in May 2019. Full results of the trial, including its economic evaluation, will be published in 2021.
