Steve and I lost our daughter Emma to congenital heart defects in 2001. Like the grief journey of anyone who loses a child, ours was long and hard. Yet years later, we are able to see clearly the positive impact Emma’s short life has made on our own. My passion for Healthy Birth Day and the Count the Kicks campaign is fueled by the intense love I feel for the child I never had the chance to know.
Kate is one of the five original founding moms of Healthy Birth Day, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that created the Count the Kicks campaign.
