New Better BedRest phone number 800-492-0618 Press 4 for Better BedRest!

We will talk to anyone with a high risk pregnancy, working or not working, bedrest or just doctor prescribed restrictions. We will talk to woman until they deliver. If they had to stop work due to their high risk pregnancy, we will explain our grant process to help pay a bill up to $500. Grants are just for women in Maryland. We talk to woman across the US! So spread the word. We have wonderful 211 staff answering all calls and going follow-ups.

Mission: An outreach program for pregnancies at risk

Vision: To empower women to overcome the challenges associated with pregnancy bedrest and/or restrictions. 

On bedrest? Have pregnancy restrictions? Have questions? Need resources to help you and your family? You are not alone.

Founded in 1993, Better BedRest, Inc. is an advocacy, public awareness and volunteer-driven non-profit whose sole purpose is to provide support, resources
and information to pregnant women who are prescribed bedrest and/or restrictions by their physicians or midwives.

Better BedRest, a registered 501 (c) 3 organization, proudly provides assistance to women in the United States on bedrest through our 24-hour Helpline, staffed by experienced volunteers, who can lend an ear and provide valuable support and resources to make the time spent off your feet a little bit more bearable.

Better BedRest also provides small grants to Maryland women on bedrest in financial distress to assist them in paying a bill. The Better BedRest Emergency Grant Fund was started with a grant from The Columbia Foundation.
