A quantitative approach with Pre-Experimental research one-shot case design was adopted to conduct the study among 30 antenatal mothers who were selected by Non- probability convenience sampling technique. The semi-structured interview method was used to collect the demographic data and the level of the mother's perception among antenatal mothers was assessed by a structured questionnaire. The results of the study shows that among 30 samples in the DFMC group, 9(60%) had good perception 5(33.33%) had very good perception and 1(6.7%) had poor perception. Whereas in the Cardiff Ten Count, 10(66.7%) had good perception and 5(33.33%) had very good perception on fetal movement among antenatal mothers.
