Mamas on Bedrest: How Can I Make Bedrest Better For You?

November 15th, 2013

Hello Mamas,

With just 2 weeks until Thanksgiving and then Christmas right around the corner, I am slowing things down and beginning the process of planning for next year. I have loved sharing information with you on the blog and via the podcasts (More podcasts are coming, just have to learn how to work them on my MAC!!). I have had a blast chatting it up with you all on the Facebook Page, hearing your stories and seeing your babies.  We have a great group of mamas in our midst and I am so grateful that each and every one of you has joined our community.

When I started Mamas on Bedrest & Beyond I started it with the intention that no woman would feel the isolation and desertion that I felt having my own children. I want every mama to have everything that she needs to not only get through her pregnancy, but to feel supported; that her needs are met,her concerns are validated and addressed to her satisfaction, so that she can then sink in, rest and calmly gestate her baby and go on to have healthy term babies. That’s it in a nutshell. That is why Mamas on Bedrest & Beyond exists.

Over the years I have tried to offer various things. Some things have been great successes, others not so much. In 2014 I really want to address the pressing needs of Mamas on Bedrest. What are those needs? I know some of them, but I truly believe that there is a core, an area that is not being addressed that if I were to address it, it could change the course of bed rest for mamas-for the better! What is it?

You tell me. In the comments section below, please share your top 5 needs/desires/things that would just make life great on bedrest. What needs, if they were addressed to your satisfaction, would enable you to sit back in bed (or on your sofa) and surrender to your pregnancy and allow you to quietly grow your baby knowing that all is well? Nothing is too wonky. Nothing is out of bounds. I will not be able to address every need. But my guess is that there are going to be a few needs that are going to come up again and again. They are literally going to be universal, submitted by mamas across the globe. It is those needs that I want to address.  It is those needs that, if I can clearly and succintly convey them to “powers that be”, I may be able to get funding for and meet. (Now wouldn’t that be amazing??)

So write your top 5 needs, desires,” things that would make bed rest a great and memorable experience” below so that we can take Mamas on Bedrest & Beyond to the next level of service for Mamas on Bedrest.
