Thank you Changemakers!

Formerly known as the Every Woman Counts Luncheon, the Change­makers Luncheon is the most sought-after Spring event in Central Iowa. This annual fundraiser is an uplifting and inspi­ra­tional oppor­tunity to celebrate babies saved while raising awareness and funds to support our mission. Join the community of Count the Kicks Change­makers who are working to create systemic change, improve birth outcomes, and make still­birth a maternal health tragedy of the past.
