Let me talk about what life was like before Count the Kicks. We knew as physicians that tracking baby’s movement in the third trimester was important. But we didn’t have the ability to get that word out on a consistent basis to both patients and physicians. So we did our best within our office to get that information out to patients, but we didn’t have the app, or the brochures to put up in our office and to hand to patients. There is no doubt that Count the Kicks was critically important in reducing the stillbirth rate here in Iowa, and I am sure it’s going to do the same across the country and around the world.
