From the Author
THE PREGNANCY BED REST BOOK is the guide I wished I'd had during my two high-risk pregnancies. It is full of practical ideas for coping with bed rest, and it includes many hopeful stories from mothers (and fathers) who have been there. Because I know how difficult it is to find information while on bed rest, I've included lists of helpful resources and suggestions for further reading throughout the book.My hope is that this book will be a guiding light for women and their families facing a bed-rest pregnancy, providing them with direction, comfort, and encouragement.
