Better Bedrest forms Partnership with 211MD

Better BedRest is working with 211MD for all calls. Trained social workers, interns and other human resources staff will address each individual call. We pride ourselves with our Maternal Assistance Fund and if eligible staff, will send contact information to the Maternal Assistance Fund team. You will receive a phone call from that team member to start the process. Our fund offers grants up to $500 to pay a bill. It is extremely important to make sure you follow the checklist and answer all questions on the application sent to you. We thank all the 211 staff for their hard work in working with Better BedRest! We are proud to say we are 25 Years strong and will keep going!

We are still Celebrating, 25 Years Strong!

BBR is still celebrating. We hope you are having a great summer and will celebrate along with us. We will be having another Lularoe Fundraiser on Saturday October 12th from 1-3. Those on our Facebook page can get updated information there. We are also looking at doing some more Restaurant nights. These are always fun to do. If you want to make a donation on this page you can certainly do so anytime. Come out and meet us as we love meeting our supporters. Make sure you look at our resources page here as we are always updating with really good support for our pregnant moms.

Stay cool out there!

Be part of Research! $100 compensation.

2/22/18 The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is urgently seeking women who are able to travel to Baltimore for a one-hour interview. Eligible participants must have used a progestogen intervention for a pregnancy at high risk of pre-term birth, within the last 5 years. Women who were at high risk due to a shortened cervix are particularly encouraged to participate. Participants will be compensated $100 for their time; childcare can be provided. Please contact Genie Han at 410-502-4631 or if interested!

Is it almost that time of year again?

We are quickly approaching the time of year for giving. Time certainly flies! Better BedRest would love you to consider making a donation to our Emergency Grant Fund. Every year we get calls about women that have a high risk pregnancy and are struggling to pay rent, car payments, car insurance to name a few. We have been able to many in the last 10 years. We could not do it without your help. Women with high risk pregnancies get evicted, have their cars repossessed and struggle with utilities turned off. Are you able to make a $25 donation? Your donation is tax deductible. We really appreciate it. If you have any questions about our program, do not hesitate to call. The BBR helpline is 410-740-7662.

May you be blessed this holiday season,
