Iowa’s stillbirth rate hit a record low in 2018, according to state data, and the nonprofit Health Birth Day Inc. praised the progress. In the decade the nonprofit has worked on its “Count the Kicks” public health campaign, the state has seen a 32% reduction in the stillbirth rate. The rest of the country has had relatively flat rates. In 2008, Iowa lost 231 babies to stillbirth. In 2018 there were 148 stillbirths. The organization works in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio and West Virginia.
