Bedrest Support Group

Bedrest as a medical treatment refers to staying in bed day and night as a treatment for an illness or medical condition. Prolonged bedrest carries some medical risks such as demineralization of the bones and atrophy of the muscles, as well as economic and social costs. Bedrest more often refers to an extended period of recumbence at home.

    2
    I had an elderly friend who was in bed long enough that bedsores became a problem. Anyone have any advice for what works to either keep from getting bedsores, or to heal them once you have them?

    Guilty Mom

    OK, This is my first time on this site. I was hoping to find other moms surviving bedrest, but I haven't noticed much activity. Anyways, here goes. Not only does bedrest remove the mom-to-be from the rest of the world, but it limits interactions within the walls of her own home. I am currently on bedrest with my second pregnancy. It is killing me to not hold my two-year-old. I want so badly to...

I would like to get together a care package for him, to entertain him, and to make him smile. He is missing out on the nicest days of the season, and is missing deer hunting season all together and that is something he LOVES. I feel horrible and plan to...

Doc is not very optimistic that I won't be placed on bedrest and possibly sooner than later since at week 11 he noticed cervix change. ...
