Holly Willoughby, the This Morning presenter was seen looking sensational in the image, which showed her holding up a placard bearing the hashtag ‘#kicksstillcount’.
Kicks Count’s message has been ramped up recently, amid fears the COVID-19 crisis, and the subsequent strain on the NHS, has discouraged expectant mothers from seeking medical advice should they have concerns about their pregnancies. She helped spread the message when she shared the snapshot with her 6.6million followers.
In a video shared on Kicks Counts’ website, Holly said: ‘As a mum of three, I know how exciting pregnancy can be. Feeling your baby move is an incredible experience but is also a great sign that they are well.
‘There is no set number of movements you need to feel. Your baby will have their own individual pattern that you should get to know.
‘You can use a Kicks Count wristband or download the free Kicks Count App to help you get to know what is normal for your baby. If you think your baby’s movements have slowed down or stopped, contact your midwife or maternity unit immediately.
‘Do not put off calling until the next day to see what happens. Never hesitate to contact your Doctor or midwife, no matter how many times this happens.
‘It is not true that babies move less towards the end of pregnancy. A reduction in a baby’s movements can sometimes be an important warning sign that a baby is unwell. Trust your instincts and remember those kicks really do count.’
Holly has also been throwing her support behind the NHS as their staffers risk their own health to continue treating patients amid the nationwide lockdown.
She admitted that she clapped so hard during Thursday evening’s nationwide applause for the NHS and key workers she broke her wooden spoon.
She shared a snap of her smashed wooden spoon on Instagram.
Proudly holding up the spoon, Holly captioned the snap: #Clapforyourcarers #NHS ❤️’.
Holly was not the only one who suffered the mishap as fellow TV presenters Angela Scanlon and Kate Thornton commented on her snap and said they broke their spoons as well.
Several other stars joined in the nationwide applause on Thursday including Declan Donnelly, the Beckham family, Tess Daly, Vernon Kay, Cheryl and Harry Redknapp.
