April Showers: Bedrest Bash

Sometimes pregnancy calls for the mom-to-be to take to her bed. Limiting an expectant woman's time on her feet decreases pressure on the cervix, increases oxygen and nutrients to the baby, and helps maternal organ function.

But that doesn't mean the impending arrival shouldn't be celebrated with a fabulous fête like the ones thrown for mobile moms-to-be. So check and see if your bedridden friend minds if you bring the party to her.

To start planning a bedrest bash,


Since space is likely limited, put only her closest friends on the guest list. Then ask everyone to throw on their favorite pair of pajamas and head over to the house. Whether you choose to set up a bedroom spa or just kick up your heels and keep her company, the expectant woman will probably welcome the festivities.
