Emily’s baby almost died in the womb… but this app made all the difference

Emily and Ruby Eeckhoff
The “Count the Kicks” App enables moms to monitor the kicks and other movements of their babies in the third trimester. Emily Eekhoff found the app useful when she was pregnant with her son, Liam, and so the she downloaded it again when she was seven months along with her next baby.  During Week 33, the app noted that the baby wasn’t moving as often as usual.
