CoppaFeel!
CoppaFeel! Knowing your boobs could save your life. Our mission is to stamp out late detection and misdiagnosis of breast cancer by ensuring that people know the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, know what their boobs look and feel like normally, check their boobs regularly throughout their lifetime and have the confidence to seek medical referral when they detect abnormalities.
Kicks Count
Kicks Count want to empower Mums with knowledge and confidence during their pregnancy. We want to raise awareness of the importance of baby's movements as an indicator of a baby's wellbeing and reduce the UK's current stillbirth rate which is 33rd out of 35 similar income countries. More babies die in the womb or in the first week of life than from cot death, meningitis and road deaths combined! Only 10% of these are caused by a fatal congenital abnormality so there is the potential to save 90% of these babies. A change in fetal movement can be an indicator the baby is struggling in the womb, so by encouraging more mums to contact their midwife if they notice a change in their baby's regular pattern, at risk babies can be identified and delivered before its too late.

Hello! 

As women we are pretty much hit over the head with rules and regulations to follow when it comes to our health, constantly told what’s normal and what’s not but it’s daft to think that everyone is the same. What’s normal for you might be completely abnormal for another, and so the Know your Normal campaign is here to encourage you to get to grips with what’s normal for you when it comes to your body and your health, and to report any changes you notice – whether they’re in your boobs, your period or your unborn baby’s movements – for your own peace of mind. Why? Because only you know your body, only you can tell when things aren’t quite right and only you can take the step to get checked out. With any luck, everything will be hunky dory, but in the event that it’s not, at least there’s a good chance any complications will have been spotted early and can be treated if need be.

So the #KnowYourNormal campaign is for people to share  & read eachother's stories – Gah!  I hate that phrase -, raise awareness and a little bit of money for the charities who work so super duper hard to raise awareness of the importance of tracking changes in your body.  So if you’ve a story you’d like to share please do get in touch and email amielizabethblog@outlook.com with #KnowYourNormal in the subject line – we’d love to hear from you.

My Friend Elizabeth who runs Kicks Count has recently been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. She inspired me to set up and run with this important campaign. You can read her story here. 

Together we’ll also be hosting a number of events across the UK and we hope you’ll get involved, stay tuned for more info!
