I’m raising money for Kicks Count because, sadly, stillbirth isn’t rare. The UK has the 3rd highest stillbirth rate in the developed world and I'm supporting Kicks Count to change this.
I have had Obstetric Cholestatis in both of my pregnancies so recording movement has been a huge part of my experience. I feel so lucky and grateful to have had two healthy babies delivered at 38 & 37 weeks. I have used the kicks count counter and this put my mind at ease so much in those last few weeks knowing my chance of having a stillborn was higher than normal.
We hope the money we raise from our little challenge helps to encourage expectant mothers to 'count the kicks' and address common misconceptions during pregnancy. Madison will be scooting 5km over 5 weeks during the summer holidays doing 1km at a time.
We are a group of expectant and new Mums who understand the importance of monitoring baby’s movements towards the end of pregnancy to help prevent stillbirth. We value all the work kicks count are doing to raise awareness and would love to help by getting out as a group and having some fun whilst challenging our tired Mum—bodies to a 5K run!
