'Bed Rest Mom' is a support book to help pregnant women navigate the emotions, isolation and uncertainty that comes with home or hospital based bed rest, written by a mom who survived both types of bed rest with two pregnancies. In this book, Cynthia Lockrey shares her personal experience of two high-risk pregnancies and offers practical advice to help women cope with being placed on home and hospital based bed rest.

'Best Rest Mom' focuses on the emotional realities women experience, offers practical advice on topics such as Asking for Help and Preparing for Hospital, and includes exercises to help move women through their journey.

About the Author:

Cynthia Lockrey’s professional experience includes being a newspaper editor, magazine writer, corporate trainer, conference speaker, patient advocate, university and college instructor, community engagement advisor as well as public relations expert with over 20 years of experience. Her resume includes winning a Canadian Community Newspaper Award, three IABC awards and accolades for her conference speaking as well as corporate training. Cynthia has had the unique experience of having endured two high-risk pregnancies, with a combined 19 weeks home-based bed rest and seven-weeks hospital based bed rest. Her real life experience is weaved throughout the book in a writing style that is relatable to the reader. Following the birth of her son, after a difficult pregnancy and traumatic birth, Cynthia spent three years as a patient advocate, serving on the perinatal health committee at London Health Sciences Centre in Ontario. Through her work on this committee, she was able to provide a patient’s perspective on maternal health, labour and delivery and neonatal intensive care (NICU) at the hospital where she spent six weeks in antenatal and another two weeks in the NICU with her son. Cynthia continues to be an advocate for her son to ensure he gets the support and treatment needed, and is often asked to provide support and insight to moms with high-risk pregnancies.
