In 2010, at 30 weeks pregnant, I noticed my son’s movements were slowing down. Because I knew to track his movements, I was able to alert my doctor when I noticed the change.
That doctor knew exactly how to keep my son safe and inside me for ten more weeks (a combination of bed rest and a daily pill called Procardia).
Luckily, Hayden was delivered healthy and on time. I am forever grateful to the founding moms of Healthy Birth Day for their courage — – without them I would have never known the importance of kick counting and don’t want to consider what could have happened to our son without them.
My husband and I tell every expectant parent we know about kick counting and will do so for the rest of our lives. There is no question that Count the Kicks WORKS and our son is living proof.
