When a baby is unwell, they may conserve energy by slowing down their movements. This can be the first sign of a problem.

55% of women who had a stillbirth noticed their baby’s movements had slowed down or stopped but hadn’t reported it. If this symptom is reported promptly there is a window of opportunity in which the baby’s life may be saved.

We want our #movementsmatter campaign to raise awareness of the importance of foetal movements across the UK. The campaign is supported by NHS England and Kicks Count
