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.

7,500 Saves

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.
