Thank you for visiting my giving page. I’m raising money for Kicks Count because it's a small charity on a big mission - preventing babies' being stillborn.

1 in every 250 pregnancies ends in stillbirth in the UK. That's around 8 babies every day. A difference is being made, but there's still work to do. 

Why is the awareness Kicks Count raise so important?

Around half of the mothers who have a stillbirth notice their baby slowed their movements beforehand. If a baby is getting fewer nutrients or oxygen, they often move less to conserve energy. Most of the time, a baby moving less is found to be absolutely fine, but it's vital that mums recognise and report the potential warning sign.

I hope you agree it's a great cause. Your donation will make a difference and will be put to good use, ensuring more babies' arrive safely.
