Louise Macleod, a Mum and NHS worker has helped launch a maternity movement bracelet that she hopes will reduce stillbirths as well as raising vital funds for her local NHS organisation. It’s made by renowned international jeweller Davidov London Jewellery to help launch a maternity movement bracelet as part of a local NHS campaign. The campaign is to raise awareness of the importance of being aware of your baby’s movements in the womb.
The Aska Maternity Movement Bracelet has the potential to save a baby’s life and is designed to help women monitor patterns in their baby’s movements. Part of the proceeds of each sale will be donated to NHS Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group from this NHS endorsed product. The Aska Maternity Movement Bracelet has launched to huge initial success and feedback from expectant Mums who found the bracelet invaluable during their pregnancies.
Louise is a keen crafter and initially created a DIY bracelet at home during her pregnancy to help track her son’s movements. She created a beaded bracelet with a loop where she would move the loop over the bead to record her baby’s movements in the womb. The counting helped Louise learn the movement patterns of her baby.
Whilst pregnancy is a magical and special time for an expectant Mum it can often by marred with confusion and anxiety as women try to monitor the movements from their baby. Changes relating to the baby’s movements and patterns can highlight problems that may require urgent medical intervention. When women notice changes to the pattern, they are encouraged to seek advice from their medical team. The long-term aim of the bracelet is for it to help reduce still birth rates by encouraging women to notice changes sooner and to also seek help sooner.
The Aska Maternity Movement Bracelet supports Mums-to-be and new Mums who are breastfeeding with simple, yet priceless, tools to help them holistically bond with their baby or newborn by tracking their movements or feeds per day. Each Aska Maternity Movement Bracelet includes a white freshwater pearl to signify where to start monitoring each morning and a sterling silver or gold-plated charm which can be engraved. The premium package from The Aska Maternity Movement Bracelet offers the option to write the baby’s name and date of birth on the inner top lid of the box making this beautiful piece of jewellery the perfect gift for one to treasure forever.
