The Pregnancy Bed Rest Book: A Survival Guide for Expectant Mothers and Their Families
"Often the pregnancy complication and the need for bed rest arisesuddenly and unexpectedly, causing the woman and her family to face a myriad of problems...this book can be an invaluable resource under such circumstances." (From the Foreword by Richard H. Schwarz, M.D., Obstetrical Consultant to the March of Dimes) Prescribed bed rest for pregnant women can last from a few weeks to several months-and can be a highly stressful and anxious time. The author, who survived bed rest herself while pregnant, discusses everything from why bed rest is prescribed to bed/couch exercises to dealing with irritated husbands and frustrated children-and offers creative solutions. Several bed rest survivors also share their experiences throughout the book. And at the end of each chapter readers can find information for additional readings, websites and useful resources.
