My name is Jill Pick, and I am honored to be your Count the Kicks State of Iowa Ambassador. My husband Alex and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary in 2016, and we have been blessed with three beautiful little girls.
Our parenthood road has not been easy – it has been full of ups and down. All three of my pregnancies including my most recent in 2014 ended in emergency C-sections due to fetal distress.
On August 30, 2014, just a short hour before our third daughter Lincoln was born at only 29 weeks, our doctor looked at me and said words I will never forget.
“If you hadn’t been paying attention to your baby’s movements and counting the kicks and had waited even a few minutes longer, I don’t believe we would be delivering a living baby today.”
It is now that I realize that was the moment that changed my life.
There is a reason I endured what I did with all three of my pregnancies. That reason is to advocate for moms and babies everywhere.
This is why I chose to become an Ambassador for Healthy Birth Day and spread the lifesaving message of Count the Kicks.Email Me
