Are you 28 weeks pregnant? It’s time to start counting!
Every kick counts, especially with the FREE Count the Kicks app!
Count the Kicks is a safe and simple way to help monitor the well-being of your baby. Use this app every day during your third trimester of pregnancy to track your baby’s movement patterns.
The app is available in 12 languages: Amharic, Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Haitian-Creole, Hindi, Marshallese, Russian, Spanish, Swahili and Vietnamese.
Be sure to alert your provider immediately if you notice a change in the strength of your baby’s movements or how long it takes your baby to get to 10 movements. DON’T WAIT!
By keeping track of each time your baby kicks, rolls or pokes, you can monitor your baby’s health and begin to create a bond with him or her.

Congratulations on your little kicker!
Count the Kicks is an evidence-based stillbirth prevention campaign that teaches expectant parents the method for and importance of tracking their baby’s movement in the third trimester of pregnancy, with the goal of lowering the country’s stillbirth rate and saving babies across the nation.
To properly use the Count the Kicks app, we recommend you have a kick counting session in the app every day in the third trimester, preferably at the same time each day. Set a reminder on the app to remember to count, pay attention to the strength of your baby’s movements in addition to the amount of time it takes to get to 10 movements, and speak up to your provider immediately if the strength of your baby’s movements become weaker or if you notice a change in the amount of time it takes your baby to get to 10.
