January 6th, 2014

Mamaonbedrest-on-the-phoneHappy New Year Mamas!

For 2014 we’re compiling an  e-book guide for Mamas on Bedrest.

This e-guide will contain no only the essential information every Mama needs to know when she is placed on bed rest, It will also contain first hand accounts of life on bed rest and the tips and tricks to making bed rest a success. Mamas on Bedrest are the best resource for navigating bed rest and while forums and chats are great, mamas new to bed rest often want something that they can refer to again and again.

So mamas, here’s your chance to become immortal! There are two ways in which you can participate in this process:

1. Ask a question or share a difficulty that you have being placed on bed rest

2. Share your bed rest story, and how you survived the hours, days, weeks and months on bed rest and now hold your precious little one.

Mamas, please share your stories! We are in particular need of mamas to share stories who had preterm labor, an incompetent cervix, pre-eclampsia, placenta previa, a premature infant or multiples. Hold nothing back! We’ll need you to share the good, the bad and the ugly!!! And for you new mamas, Ask your questions. There is no question too insignificant and rest assured (no pun intended), if you have this question, there is most likely at least one other mama out there with the same question.

If you are interested in participating, please send your name and your question or story to

  1. My daughter Joy was born at 23 weeks last year. Due to modern medicine and prayers she is doing great today. I hemorrhaged at 17 weeks for the first of 4 times because of 100% placenta previa, which turned into placenta accreta (which I believe was caused by 3 prior c-sections). After she came home from 121 days in the NICU, I wrote a memoir called “From Hope To Joy” about my life-threatening
 pregnancy and my daughter’s 4 months in the NICU (with my 3 young sons at 
home), which is now available on both the Amazon and Barnes&Noble websites. I have a whole chapter on bed rest called “Bed Rest: The Enemy”. It was quite a roller 
coaster that I am certain some of you have been on or are currently riding on. My mission is to provide hope to women struggling with
 high-risk pregnancies, encourage expectant mothers to educate themselves before 
electing cesarean deliveries, provide families of premature babies a realistic 
look at what lies ahead in their NICU journey, and show that miracles can 
happen, and hope can turn into joy.

Thank you.
