We would like to thank those of you who have offered help and support with our campaign . We receive so many messages of support and encouragement, which gives us the strength to keep campaigning, here are just a few:
“I was so sorry to hear of your tragic loss of Chloe last year as a stillbirth. As you say in your correspondence, it is of grave concern that you share this terrible experience with so many…
“…The RCOG wishes you every success in your Chloe’s “Count the kicks” Campaign, which aims to increase the awareness of the importance of fetal movements.”

“Just wanted to say well done Sophia. Your drive, determination and positivity are so inspiring and what you are doing is absolutely remarkable. I’m sure I speak for all us angel mummies who wish there was more awareness out there, when I say ”Thank You’!!
” My babies kicks stopped at 30 weeks gestation, i didnt think much of it, due to the fact having two boys before him, i was getting concerened after day 4 i went for monitoring at the hospital my baby boy was born at 31 weeks+1 he’s fought so much, he’s now a healthy 5 mth old hes still having tests but hes getting through them… please count the kicks!!
I wasnt even told to do this :( xxxx”
“I think this is such an important campaign. so many women are told to go home or not to make a fuss when childbirth is one of the most dangerous things a mum and baby can go through. midwives should find the time for people(or have better funding for staffing levels) and maybe there would be less tragic losses”
“I am pregnant again after losing my 2nd baby to Stillbirth, I go to a high risk specialtist. They have me doing kick counts every day at the same time. Women should be worried if they haven’t felt their baby move! Studies also show that Stillbirth is often not immediate and that there are indicators that something is wrong before hand and that had women paid attention to their kicking then they may have been able to save that child.”
“This makes me so angry. There is so much ignorance that goes on in this world. Websites and magazines just don’t want to be the ones to shed the light on the truth. They want everyone to believe that they will end up with a beautiful healthy bouncing baby at the end of an easy birth.
