Stories of experiences

Spörkin Telja (Kicks counts)

"Spörkin telja" is an educational material about reduced fetal movements that Gleym-mér-ei organized in collaboration with the Midwives Association of Iceland, the health care centre and the National Hospital with support from the Ministry of Health and the National Medical Board.

All mothers-to-be receive a booklet delivered to maternity care, which discusses the baby's movements during pregnancy, together with information on how to promote a healthy pregnancy. A video was also made that is shown to expectant mothers in maternity care.
