Running from 1-14 February Kicks Count
Kicks CountÂ needÂ your help to spread the word to all pregnant women and at the same time to help raise much needed funds so that Kicks Count can continue their campaign to save babies lives.
A change in your baby’s movements can be a key warning sign that a baby is in distress â€“ 2 out of 3 mums who have a stillbirth say they noticed their babyâ€™s movements slow down beforehand.
It is therefore vitalÂ that all cases of reduced movement are reported to a midwife or maternity unit and we need all pregnant mums to know it!
