Abstract: Human resources is the backbone of developing and under developed nations. In most of the developing countries and in the smart cities medical system is not centralized for sharing the information. Mostly pregnant women is not able to do their regular check-ups at the early stage of pregnancy and this leads to higher mortality rate in case of infant and maternal in the rural areas. Due to these issues, the society is facing an immense health problem. In the existing method the people in the rural areas find difficult to travel over miles to have a doctor consultation if, so having a doctor consultation they are exposed to ultrasound scan and along with that some vital signs is measured and it is processed by Bluetooth technology. In order to overcome these issue, various sensors are used to measure the vital parameters such as blood pressure, blood glucose level and heart beat rate. The aim is to develop a compact Near Field Communication (NFC) device for rural pregnant women in order to access the vital signs of maternal and foetus with low cost using recent sensors and IoT.
