'Bed Rest Mom' is a support book to help pregnant women navigate the emotions, isolation and uncertainty that comes with home or hospital-based bed rest, written by a mom who survived both types of bed rest with two difficult pregnancies. In this book, Cynthia Lockrey shares her personal experience of two high-risk pregnancies and offers practical advice to help women cope with being placed on home and hospital based bed rest. 'Best Rest Mom' focuses on the emotional realities women experience, offers practical advice on topics such as Asking for Help and Preparing for Hospital, and includes exercises to help move women through their journey.
