Carol Millar serves as the Chief Operating Officer of Healthy Birth Day, Inc. As the COO, Carol oversees the day-to-day business operations, facilitates the implementation of the strategic vision of the organization, provides fiscal oversight and ensures that our team members have the support they need to bring their best selves to work each day.
After 30+ years as an investment professional working for several large insurance companies in Des Moines, she decided to embark on a new path to use her skills to serve the community. Healthy Birth Day, Inc.’s mission is a personal mission for Carol and her husband. In 1994 their son, Caleb was stillborn at 34 weeks. She believes if the Count the Kicks awareness campaign had existed then she would have had the tools to track her son’s movements and he might have been saved.
