Make the most of bedrest with our tips
Did you know some spas do house calls? I didn’t! But on a whim I called Elmwood Spa (near the hospital here in Toronto). A lovely RMT named JC came to my hospital room once a week — the best investment during my pregnancy.
Added bonus: Some health-care plans cover massage — it’s worth looking into. Also, friends looking for a way to help can always give you a gift card for a pick me up pedi! Ask your doc first if it’s OK for you!
The Snoozer full body pillow is a must for any woman on bedrest. I still use mine for breastfeeding/comfort and plan to marry it one day!
The Snoozer is available at Motherhood.ca
Laughter is the best medicine, but hospital TV rental is expensive. Try a trial Netflix subscription, click on comedy websites or YouTube clips. I couldn’t dive into lengthy/heavy books because I was too stressed. So writers like David Sedaris, Tina Fey, Demitri Martin and George Carlin kept me giggling and distracted.
