Is a non-stress test really necessary for the baby
Non-stress tests are medically indicated for a variety of reasons during pregnancy. Non-stress tests are an easy and non-invasive way to determine how the baby is doing. If you doctor recommends a non-stress test it is important that you do it. If you have any concerns please ask your doctor. Non-stress tests are not recommended for all pregnancies so if your doctor wants you to take one it is probably necessary.
