Observation of Fetal Heart Rate (FHR) is an effective method for fetal reconnaissance and offers vital data about wellbeing of the unborn. The procurement of FECG turns into a tedious work since it is death-challenging for an immediate contact over the fetus. Fetal electrocardiogram (ECG) waveform examination is performed with the estimation of electrical action from fetal heart and has created in the course of the last 3 decades. The FECG can be estimated by fixing electrodes on the mother's abdominal region. In any case, it has low power and is contaminated with various noises and interference. The FECG signal illustrates fetal heart action, which is exceptionally imperative to detect the FHR, fetal growth and presence of fetal disorder or investigate multiple births, to prevent neonatal disease and to perform parametric examination of the fetal heart. This paper surveys the current methodologies utilized for FECG extraction.
