In this video blog, Darline Turner shares the Healthy Happy Pregnancy Cookbook. Written by Registered Dieticians Stephanie Clarke and Willow Jarosh, the book contains 125 recipes that are not only tasty, but also address many of the common ailments of pregnancy. Today, Darline tries the Blueberry Banana Oat smoothie, designed to give pregnant mamas, most especially mamas on bedrest relief from leg cramps.
Today’s Video blog is thanks to Mama on Bedrest Sarah. In an e-mail, Sarah asked me for ways to help prevent blood clots from forming in her legs. In today’s video blog, I share ways to help prevent blood clots in the legs while on bed rest. With a combination of exercises and massage, Mamas on Bedrest can help prevent potentially life threatening blood clots from forming and then traveling to vital areas of the body and causing major life threatening complications. In the next blog, I’ll share resources and tips Mamas on Bedrest can use to help prevent Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) or blood clots from forming.
