CE Training for Healthcare Professionals
Count the Kicks is on a mission to save 7,500 babies each year in the U.S., but we can’t do it without the help of dedicated healthcare professionals like you. We know there are a lot of demands on today’s healthcare workers, but teaching patients how to Count the Kicks only takes a few minutes, and it’s a conversation that can truly make an impact by saving a baby’s life.
Did you know? Each year in the U.S., more than 23,000 babies are born still according to the CDC. Statistically, that means 1 out of every 169 pregnancies ends in stillbirth. For African American moms, that number is even more alarming – 1 in 96!
We have developed a proven set of educational materials and resources, including a free app for expectant parents. We want to educate expectant parents on the importance of tracking fetal movement in the third trimester and to understand their baby’s normal movement pattern. This way, if they notice a change, they feel empowered to contact their provider right away.
Our CE Training helps maternal healthcare providers gain a deeper understanding of our evidence-based stillbirth prevention campaign and learn how to talk to expectant parents about fetal movement.
