Surviving bed rest
In this video blog, I share information on pregnancy safe ways to prevent infections. Pregnancy overloads a woman’s system and consequently she is not as readily able to ward off infections or to fight them when she does become ill.
As discussed in previous blogs, it is essential that pregnant women have adequate Vitamin D levels, to supplement with fish oil rich in the Omega 3 Fatty Acids docosaheaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), to drink lots of water, get lots of rest and to eat a nutrient dense diet. In this video blog I offer a few other suggestions to help mamas on bed rest keep their bodies healthy and strong. On an additional note, I forgot to include probiotics that are helpful against yeast infections. They are found in most yogurts and can also be taken as supplements.

Our community is blossoming! As I was looking over some of the stats for the website, our Facebook Page and through e-mails and DVD sales, I was heartened and humbled to see how our “garden” has grown. Our community is some 550-600 mamas strong! In the first quarter of 2013 alone we had 9 births, 6 of those term-or at least >37 weeks!! To date mamas have hailed in from the United States, Canada, Trinidad, Belgium, New Zealand, Ireland, the Sultanant of Oman and most recently, India! We each bring a shared experience of bed rest, but each mama also shares her wisdom, her knowledge and most importantly the tips and tools she uses to stay the course and have her baby!
I am proud and honored to be able to do this work and so pleased to serve each and every one of you!
It’s almost here. “What?” You ask? The Mamas on Bedrest E-Book Series! I have spent all month preparing and it will be ready for launch next week.The e-book series has the same organic origins that Bedrest Fitness and Mamas on Bedrest & Beyond. I’ve been looking for a comprehensive reference for Mamas on Bedrest and I just can’t seem to find what I am looking for. So necessity being the mother of invention, I’ve created it. Initially I had the idea to make a regular book, but my impatient nature got the best of me. When I am surfing the web late at night and I find a reference that meets my needs, I hate that I often have to wait for it to come in the mail (or pay double the cost of the reference in shipping!). An e-book solves that problem. Whenever mama finds what she needs, she can simply pay and access it immediately. (Ah, the power of Technology!!!)
I have a couple of edits to complete and the first book, Mamas on Bedrest-The Basics will be available next week. It will kick off our annual spring promotion in honor of Mother’s Day. Look for a big announcement in our next e-newsletter. What? Not on our newsletter list??? Look in the upper right hand corner of this webpage and get yourself signed up! You won’t want to miss this announcement!
