Heather Shafer Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I’m raising money for Kicks Count because, sadly, stillbirth isn’t as rare as many people think. The UK has the 3rd highest stillbirth rate in the developed world.

Things are changing, but there is more to be done. The latest figures released by the Office of National Statistics in July 2018 showed that 2017 had the lowest stillbirth rate since records began. Raising awareness of baby's movements IS making a difference! As a charity dedicated to reducing stillbirth and neonatal death, Kicks Count need help to continue raising awareness and to save more babies lives.

Sadly too many people close to me have suffered loss, I was very lucky that Erin had no complications and Kicks Count really helped me through pregnancy (and beyond), even just talking to other mums and sharing experiences so you know you're not alone.

It’s a great cause, and your donation will help them achieve even more. Donating is easy, quick and secure.

Please share with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter – and elsewhere – so I can reach my target and together we can help Kicks Count do more. Thank you!

Thank you all so far for your generosity, I have increased my target as we still have over a week to go. My employer offers match funding up to £200 so if we can reach this target we could double it! Heather Shafer
