Events

Count the Kicks Changemakers Luncheon

Formerly the Every Woman Counts Luncheon, the Changemakers Luncheon is our largest fundraiser of the year. All proceeds benefit our mission to educate and empower expectant parents through the Count the Kicks public health campaign. Visit our event page for more information on this year’s event, which will be held Monday, April 17, 2023.

Educational Campaigns

Feel the Beat

Black mothers are more than twice as likely to lose their babies to stillbirth than white mothers. We launched a PSA to reach mothers most at risk of losing their babies. Feel the Beat follows an expectant couple as they make a tradition of dancing with their daughter and counting her kicks using the free Count the Kicks app.

Save 7,500 Babies

As our reach grows, so does our vision for the future. In 2020, we set our goal to save 7,500 babies every year. Learn more about how we are striving toward this goal and how you can help us achieve it.

Baby Saves

Through years of outreach and education, the babies we have helped still inspire us the most.

Meet our baby saves and learn how Count the Kicks helped save their lives.
