We recently found out that the charity Kicks Count were running seriously low on funding. We were so sad to hear of their services having to stop, that we decided to come up with a way to support them and #danceforkicks began! We decided that for 14 days we would set up Instagram reels, one a day, to support awareness of Kicks Count and most importantly as well raise funds for their services.
In all seriousness, the work that they do is amazing, they support families through pregnancy loss and birth loss and they aim to raise awareness about counting the kicks, during pregnancy. By raising awareness of baby’s movements in pregnancy, they hope to support wotk to reduce the UK’s stillbirth and neonatal death rate. They do this by supporting healthcare services, maternity and midwifery services and sharing guidance with the public.
We have been dancing over on our Instagram account to raise money and awareness for #danceforkicks and we urge you to do the same. If you can dance with us, share our hashtag or share more about their work, it all really helps.
