What if being an athlete was about more than winning?
This season, athletes are doing something bigger than the game by supporting Count the Kicks—a public health campaign teaching expectant parents the importance of monitoring their babies’ movements during the first trimester of pregnancy.
Count the Kicks is a program of Healthy Birth Day, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention of stillbirth. Count the Kicks has a growing network of supportive doctors, nurses, hospitals and clinics across the U.S. that give our educational materials to their patients. The free Count the Kicks app, which is available in 15+ languages in the Google Play and iOS app stores, has been downloaded more than 235,000 times in all 50 U.S. states, and more than 140 countries. The app allows expectant parents to monitor their baby’s movement, record the history, rate the strength, set a daily reminder, count for twins and more. Count the Kicks has 60+ Ambassadors in 30+ U.S. states, plus Washington, D.C. We have appeared on the Big Ten Network, Good Morning America, in O Magazine, and produced a national PSA that has generated more than 300 million viewer impressions.
