Maternova and Mommy Measure partnered to bring this obstetric measuring tape to the market.

Fundal height (or symphysio-fundal height) is the distance from the top of the pubic bone to the top of the uterus. The measurement of this height is usually within 1-3 cm of the baby's gestational age in weeks-- though some literature does indicate that this measurement is most accurate in the second half of a pregnancy (after 20 weeks). The fundal height can be used to track the progress of a pregnancy in two week intervals, to estimate gestational age, track fetal growth and the general health of the pregnancy.
