Filming baby’s general movements at home, A guide for families


In the first few months your baby shows patterns of movements, called “general movements” which can be seen when a baby moves by themselves without distraction. General movements are best viewed from video recordings and can provide important information about your baby’s physical development. This guide will help you film your baby at home under the best possible conditions so that a health professional can assess your baby’s movements.
