Jade Maslin After donating my hair several times I decided to do it again and during conversation about it, Isobel said she would like to do it too! We decided to raise money for kicks count as the work they do to raise awareness to prevent miscarriage and stillbirth which as you all know is close to our hearts. We will each be donating 12" of our hair which will be sent to the little princess trust. Thank you for showing how proud of Isobel you are by all donations big or small.

In 2017, the latest published statistics, 2,873 babies were stillborn in the UK. That was a decrease of 7.7% from 2016 and the lowest number since records began. A difference is being made, but there is still work to do. NINE new lives are still being lost every single day and that's too many.

Why is the awareness Kicks Count raise so important?

Around half of mothers who had a stillbirth noticed their baby slowed their movements beforehand. If a baby is getting less 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. Jade Maslin
