Count The Kicks Baby Movements Awareness Week 2015 | #KicksCount

If you haven't already heard of Count The Kicks, they are a UK charity who aim to 'empower mums to be with knowledge and confidence throughout their pregnancy' and to help reduce the number of women who go through the tragedy of stillbirth.

This week (2nd - 9th November 2015) marks the start of Baby Movements Awareness Week which is a campaign to raise awareness about babies' movements in pregnancy. There are many myths surrounding this, for example how many times a baby should move in 24 hours and that 'babies movements should slow down at the end of pregnancy', which is false. All babies' movements are in fact different but they advise you to get to know the pattern of your babies' movements and if you notice a change, seek advice from a medical professional.

"A baby’s movements indicate its wellbeing and by understanding their baby, mums can be empowered to trust their instincts, enjoy their pregnancy and ensure the healthy delivery of their baby. - Count The Kicks

Count The Kicks has invaluable information and resources to mums and dads to be. Including a pregnancy guide, information for dads, when to call your midwife and an online shop where you can buy a wristband so you can keep track of babies' movements easily.

I hope you find this post useful, and you can find out more information over on the Count The Kicks websitePlease feel free to share it with the hashtag #KicksCount and let more people know about the importance of counting the kicks.
