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. That made Emily nervous.
Emily went to Mercy Hospital in Des Moines and discovered that her baby was in trouble. An umbilical cord had wrapped itself three times around the infant’s neck. Little Ruby was promptly delivered by an emergency C-section. Emily credits the app for saving her baby’s life.
