Biophysical Profile (prenatal period)

A biophysical profile (BPP) test measures the health of the baby during pregnancy. A BPP test may include a nonstress test with electronic fetal heart monitoring and a fetal ultrasound. The BPP measures the baby’s heart rate, muscle tone, movement, breathing, and the amount of amniotic fluid around the baby.  A BPP is commonly done in the last trimester of pregnancy
