A tribute to Better BedRest from an Emergency Grant Recipient!

This was such a beautiful letter, I just wanted to share. Please pass the word on to friends and co workers that Better BedRest exists to support moms on bedrest due to High Risk Pregnancies. We offer a $500 emergency grant to those women who can prove a loss of income while on bedrest....Help us spread the word. Howard County is our home and very important to us. We are also national so please spread the word. Thanks so much. Joanie Reisfeld, Founder BBR

Oh my goodness!!! wow! Thank you so much! I don't even know where to begin! This really means so much to me and my family! It really is a blessing, that there are women [and i'm sure men] who really understand the hardships one can face, upon being placed on bed rest. It is so comforting to know that there are people out there that recognize this can be a major issue for some women/families. It is an even better feeling to know that somewhere out there, there is a large group of people that donate their time and energy into helping women [like me] when they are put on bed rest, that there are people that care enough about this issue to start an outreach group, especially when many people do not recognize this as an issue at all.

Not only do you help women like us financially, but emotional and moral support as well. It's a great feeling knowing that everyone at Better BedRest inc. can relate to each of the women placed on bed rest in one way or another and care to take the time out of there day for months to call and talk with women like me that are on bed rest to just chat and see how things are going, and what's on your mind, and also help to provide with any other resources they can give.

Better BedRest inc. is a true blessing for many many reasons, and i will definitely be one to donate to this program once i get back to work, and be a voice for this program for all the other pregnant women out there that are placed on bed rest. If you have a facebook, please let me know, i would definitely become a fan of your page, {and if you don't have one, you may consider getting a facebook page -[it is free] and a great way to get out there and be heard and known! again i absolutely cannot thank you enough for all the support and great conversations your program has provided me with thus far. a great thank you from the bottom of my heart. stumbling upon your website was a true blessing in disguise for me for many many reasons. Thank you, Better BedReds inc. so much!
