Megan and Chad are proud supporters of Healthy Birth Day, Inc. and know firsthand the impact of our mission. She learned about the Count the Kicks program while she was in her third trimester with Will in 2011 and went to see her doctor when she noticed a change in his movement pattern. Will was delivered later that day and she credits Count the Kicks and her doctor for Will’s safe arrival.
As we commemorate a decade of the Changemakers Luncheon, it’s a fitting time to acknowledge the profound change that individuals like Megan bring to our community. Her dedication and passion for maternal and child health have not only shaped her own family’s journey but have also inspired countless others.
