Mamas on Bedrest: Meet Mechelle, our March 2012 Mama of the Month!

Meet Mechelle, our March 2012 Mama of the Month!

Mechelle is the proud mama of 2 year old John and brand new Anthony, born January 16, 2012. Mechelle was on bed rest with both boys for 4 weeks due to Pregnancy Induced Hypertension.

We asked Mechelle what her best advice is for a mama on bed rest and she had this to say,

“My advice is to not be ashamed of asking for or at least accepting help. Our little farm and a 2 yr old required me to really swallow my pride but it has been so worth it!”

Mechelle really took to heart advice that she received from her 30 Minute Complimentary Bedrest Breakthrough session. At first she was a bit resistant to getting help, but when her farm and family were stretched beyond her ability to “do it”, she did reach out and was pleasantly surprised at how generous people were to her.

Asking for and receiving help is essential to surviving bed rest. If you need help and are unsure how or who to ask, let us know by sending an e-mail to We are more than happy to help. You can also check out our blog which is chocked full of tips and our resources page.

    Find a good support network and don’t be ashamed to admit you’re struggling! I was on bed rest with my twins. 4 weeks at home then followed by 56 days in the hospital for a total if 11 weeks. We made it to 36 weeks though and they both care home with me. The boys are great and just turned 1 January 30th. Take help where you can, rest, read and find your spiritual side. I thanked God ever day for another day of pregnancy.

    Thanks so much for sharing your experience, Jen. We need more mama vets to share with those in the trenches the importance of getting help and support. Thanks so much for your input.
