Fetal ECG (FECG) signal contains potentially precise information that could assist clinicians in making more appropriate and timely decisions during pregnancy and labor. The extraction and detection of the FECG signal from the composite abdominal signals of the mother with powerful and advance methodology is becoming a very important requirement in fetal monitoring. This paper illustrates the algorithm developed based on neural network approach to provide efficient and effective way of separating FECG signal from the abdominal ECG signals. The FECG signal is isolated from the abdominal signal by back propagation neural network approach. The input signal is considered as maternal ECG (mECG) obtained from the thorax of the mother, and the target signal is abdominal signal (AECG) which has both MECG and FECG. The output of the network is subtracted from the target input (AECG). To reduce the difference between the input and target signal the weights have been updated every step, so that acceptable FECG signal can be obtained.
