Kicks Count is a charity set up to teach expectant Mums the importance of monitoring their baby’s movements and taking responsibility for their health and that of their baby’s by working with their healthcare providers throughout their pregnancy.
Kicks Count aim is to lower the UK’s stillbirth and neonatal death rate by raising awareness of baby’s movements in pregnancy. A baby’s movements indicate its wellbeing and a reduction in fetal movement can be a key warning sign that the baby is in distress. By recognising a change in movement and reporting it to their healthcare professional Mums can help ensure the healthy delivery of their baby. The majority of mums that have suffered a stillbirth report retrospectively that they did notice a change in movement. The Kicks Count campaign aims to empower mums to be with the confidence to understand their baby’s movements and to contact their midwife immediately if they notice a change in their baby’s regular pattern of movement.
Kicks Count produce leaflets with important information about baby’s movements, antenatal note stickers and kick counting wristbands to help mums keep track of baby’s movements and encourages them to contact their midwife or antenatal ward if they notice any change in their baby’s regular pattern of movement. They exhibit at all the major baby shows to get the message out to mums about the importance of baby’s movements.
