The Count the Kicks app is a great way to monitor your baby's health in the third trimester! This free tool allows you to track your babies’ movements, and strength of your baby, on a daily basis, while giving you data to share with your provider. In-app messaging empowers you to speak up if there is a change in what’s normal for your baby and provides you with guidance on how to monitor it. Research shows a change in fetal movement can be the earliest and sometimes only indication that a baby is in distress and should be checked by a provider. Kick counting is a great way to bond with your baby, and 78% of app users say it lowers their anxiety during pregnancy.
Count the Kicks app features include:
- Ability to rate the strength of your baby’s movements
- Ability to download and send kick-counting data directly from the app
- Ability to take notes on each kick-counting session
- Available in 16 languages: Amharic, Arabic, Burmese, Chinese, Dari, English, French, Haitian-Creole, Hebrew, Hindi, Marshallese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, and Vietnamese
- Ability to track movements of single babies or twins
- Easy-to-read graphs that show your baby’s normal movement history
- Login via social media or accounts such as Google or Microsoft
- Daily interactive and educational messages that appear after a kick session has been saved
- Notifications to remind users to count kicks
- An optional survey for users to inform us of their experience using the app and the outcome of their pregnancy
- "Baby save" stories within the app and the ability for users to submit a baby save story directly from the app
- Available on Apple Watch and on your desktop computer.
Now available in Portuguese and Hebrew + you can count your baby's movements on a PC! All of your kick-counting data will sync between a PC, the mobile app, or your Apple watch! Making it even easier to stay in tune with your baby's movements in the 3rd trimester of pregnancy.
Ratings and Reviews
Fastest baby kick counter I could find, and it was created by an nonprofit
Fastest baby kick counter I could find, and it was created by an nonprofit. The Baby Center app is a good app in general, and has a kick counter too. But it’s not very accessible at this kick counter and I found it harder to track the kicks on the fly with the Baby Center app.
The one is fast because it automatically opens to the kick counter every time. The only annoying thing about it is the little pop up messages they have every single time you finish logging your kicks sessions. I would suggest they only pop up every other, or every few kick sessions instead. Otherwise good app & counter, with lots of helpful info from a good & trusted organization. Thanks

Too glitchy to rely on
I wanted to like this app - especially given all the positive ratings- but the first two out of three sessions I had were a complete waste. Day 1, I started counting, finished the session, then it prompted me to create an account or continue on as a guest. I of course created an account, as I intended to use this for the next 3 months. Unfortunately, once I did that, all my session data was lost and was not synced to the new account I created. I was bummed but planned to do Day 2 with my new account. All was well. On to Day 3 (today), things were going well. However, when I went to record a kick, I opened back up my phone (bc if no activity, the screen goes black - which was fine before - you just reopen it and continue your counts…although it would be ideal for the app to stay open and active when you were in an active kick count session), and this time the app had just restarted itself and was back to the main screen asking me to count my kicks! When I went into session history, I saw my incomplete session with 3 missing kicks and the time it took to get to 7. Why did it choose that time to just shut down and restart? So once again, I was left with incomplete data. I’m deleting this app and finding a new one - this info is way too important to keep taking chances on whether my info will save one day to the next!

First, the Apple Watch app does not work at all. I downloaded this app specifically because it said it was Apple Watch compatible and it doesn’t work. I don’t have my phone on me most the day so I missed tons of sessions because I can’t log them.
I’ve had this app for about a week and every single day the little tip or fact that pops up is solely about still birth and fetal demise. I’m 32 weeks pregnant and I don’t need to see this and not just every day, but every time I log a kick session it’s the same pop up for 24 hours about still birth or how often still birth happens or “meet our ambassadors and their stories” and every single one I read is about them suffering a still birth. Like Jesus can this stop?! Can we get anything else for these pops ups except all of our biggest fears? And there is no way to turn this off. You have to see it every time you finalize a kick session. Maybe I’m unlucky and getting them non stop but I’m about to delete this app if I get one more.
