The Every Woman Counts luncheon is Healthy Birth Day, Inc.’s largest fundraising event of the year and is held each spring in a large ballroom in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Past speakers include Glennon Doyle Melton, Kelly Corrigan, Rachel Macy Stafford and Melissa Radke. Plans are underway for the 2019 luncheon, with a date to be announced later this summer.

Proceeds from each luncheon benefit the Count the Kicks awareness campaign and educate and empower more expectant moms to track their baby’s movements in the third trimester. The 2018 Every Woman Counts luncheon raised $120,000 for our efforts to prevent stillbirth. We are deeply grateful to our table captains and event sponsors for making each luncheon a success. The 2019 luncheon will be our fifth year in a row for this fun and inspiring event!
