Editorial Reviews

The first of its kind, Bedrest Fitness is an innovative fitness program for pregnant women on prescribed bed rest. Using a rubber exercise band for resistance, this full body exercise program can be performed entirely while resting in bed and is a simple and effective way for pregnant women to maintain muscle tone and strength. The exercises are gentle and place no stress or pressure on the pregnant abdomen or cervix

Each year approximately 700,000 pregnant women are prescribed bed rest because of the risk of premature labor and delivery (labor and delivery before 37 weeks). However, prolonged inactivity leaves women at risk for the development of blood clots in their legs, muscle wasting and markedly decreased overall strength and endurance. These effects were confirmed by NASA researchers in their research on the effects of prolonged inactivity in female astronauts. The astronauts were only inactive for 60 days. Many pregnant women are prescribed bed rest for as long as 4-5 months! When it's time to labor and deliver, many women who have been on prescribed bed rest simply cannot muster up the strength to push their babies into this world! They are at increased risk for labor and delivery complications, cesarean section delivery and prolonged recovery time-time they'd rather be spending with their new bundles of joy.

With its full body exercise program, Bedrest Fitness helps women maintain their strength and endurance. While sitting or lying in bed, most women will be able to perform the exercises with ease and without pain or discomfort. Additionally, they'll be helping to reduce the risks of blood clots in the legs, prolonged labors, delivery complications and prolonged recovery post partum. Bedrest Fitness is an essential tool for women with high risk pregnancies on prescribed bed rest.
