Sidelines.org Helps High Risk Mommies

Baby Bump: Helping From the Sidelines

A healthy pregnancy can be a stressful time in a woman's life. Add high risk to that and any mama–to–be is likely to drive herself crazy. High-risk patients can worry themselves sick about their condition and while it's nice to talk to friends and family about their problems, it could be more helpful to turn to someone who has been through the same situation.

At sidelines.org high-risk pregnant women can request to be partnered with volunteer moms who had the same issues in their pregnancies and had positive outcomes.

There are many sites on the Internet that offer advice, information, and chat rooms, but what makes this online spot special is that the helping hands can bring hope to the expecting mothers. Many of the volunteers are not only available through email, but also via phone. For patients on bedrest, that can be a huge plus.

What a great idea. I think it's stressful enough having an uneventful pregnancy let alone one with complications. Having someone who has been through what you are going through would probably be helpful.
