A year ago I suffered a miscarriage and it broke my heart, but in September 2017 I found out I was pregnant again with my rainbow baby, I was determined to keep her. However from about 34 weeks Isla went very quiet and didn’t move much at all. Between 34 weeks and 38 weeks I went to the maternity assessment unit 7 times for reduced movements and I was right Isla’s movements very slow on the ctg monitors, eventually I was booked in for an induction at 38 and 3 days. Between 38 weeks and the day of induction the maternity assessment unit called me in every day to monitor Isla and at this point was considered ok but still needed to be induced. Throughout the induction she kept up her performance of worrying midwives and had to have many clips on her head to ensure she was ok, after about 7 hours she was born at 3:04 am on the 30th May 2018. She weighed 6lbs 6 and turned out to be absolutely fine.

Without Kicks Count knowledge and my instincts it could have been a very different story I’m greatful to kicks count for making me think positively about going in for reduced movements, many women feel like an inconvience. You are not. I wasn’t I was right. As a tribute to her lost sibling I named Isla, isla Beau as she’s a rainbow, she’s my rainbow and perfect and without such heartache I wouldn’t have her. It was a struggle pregnancy but with support from a charity like kicks count I did it. ❤️❤️❤️
