We could see a rise in stillbirths due to the pandemic which is truly harrowing.
Louise Macleod, a Mum and NHS worker, has teamed up with renowned global jewellery manufacturer DAVIDOV LONDON to create a beautiful, affordable and timeless piece that she hopes will reduce stillbirths as well as raising vital funds for her local NHS organisation.
A keen crafter, Louise initially created a DIY bracelet at home during her pregnancy to help track her son’s movements. She created a beaded bracelet with a loop where she would move the loop over the bead to record her baby’s movements in the womb. The counting helped Louise learn the movement patterns of her baby.
Whilst pregnancy is a magical and special time for an expectant Mum, it can often by marred with confusion and anxiety as women try to monitor the movements from their baby. Changes relating to the baby’s movements and patterns can highlight problems that may require urgent medical intervention. When women notice changes to the pattern, they are encouraged to seek advice from their medical team. The long-term aim of the bracelet is for it to help reduce still birth rates by encouraging women to monitor changes and to also seek help sooner.
Now, here’s your chance to win an Aska Maternity Movement Bracelet.
