Our featured charity – Kicks Count

Congratulations to Kicks Count on becoming our featured charity!
So far we’ve helped raise over £700 for Kicks Count just by shopping, ordering & fundraising online via Give as you Live.

Who are Kicks Count and what do they do?

Kicks Count’s aim is to lower the UK’s stillbirth and neonatal death rate by raising awareness of baby’s movements in pregnancy. Kicks Count work extremely hard on empowering every Mum with the confidence to call for advice if she is ever worried during her pregnancy.
A baby’s movements indicate its wellbeing and a reduction in fetal movement can be a key warning sign that the baby is in distress. By recognising a change in movement and reporting it to their healthcare professional Mums can help ensure the healthy delivery of their baby… Kicks Count also supply amazing information to fathers to be and to midwives and neonatal nurses.

Sadly, The UK’s current stillbirth and neonatal death rate combined means that, every single day, 15 sets of parents will not take their precious newborn baby home. A stillborn baby is one who has died before or during birth at or after 24 weeks of pregnancy. A neonatal death happens in the first 28 days after birth. Still Birth can happen to any Mother at and time.
