“What a fun, sarcastic guide of the need-to-knows of bed rest!”

Who is Beating Bed Rest for?

  • A newly pregnant mom who wants to prepare herself for the possibility of bed rest

  • A mom who’s on bed rest at home and might be put in the hospital

  • A mom already on bed rest in the hospital

  • Family members of a mom on bed rest so they can see it from her side

and claim an attitude that says, 
‘I can beat bed rest!’
