Help Families have Healthy Pregnancies & Babies
Sleep on side. Count your kicks. Do not smoke.
“We get by with a little help from our friends”
We know that it takes a village to raise a child. But this support system should be present from the time that little heartbeat flickers to life. This village is needed even more when sometimes, that tiny flicker becomes a star in the sky.
In 2018 there were 105,000 stillbirths in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam alone. This means that every day, 286 families in these countries received the devastating news that their full-term baby was not alive.
However, a number of these losses can be prevented.
Project Sidekicks aims to reduce the stillbirth rate in SEA by 10% by creating awareness about the benefits of sleeping on the side in pregnancy, counting baby’s kicks, giving up smoking and having a strong support system for both mums-to-be and parents who have suffered pregnancy loss. Help parents and parents-to-be by being supportive, sharing your experiences and encouraging our 3 calls-to-action for all expecting mamas!
- 1. Sleep on side
- 2. Count your kicks
- 3. Do not smoke

Healing after the loss of a baby takes a lot more than just time. It takes a lot of heart work. Take all the time you need to heal. As part of our Break the Silence call-to-action, we encourage you to post a memorial message and share your experience with other parents.
