Expectant mothers who find themselves in hospital on bed-rest in the second trimester/early third trimester period of their pregnancy, due to complications or risk factors associated with their pregnancy face a stressful and traumatic time. They often find themselves in such situations unexpectedly and without time to make any preparations for themselves.

Our Best Rest Care Packages are currently distributed to the following hospitals:

  • King Edward Memorial Hospital;
  • St John of God Subiaco; and 
  • St John of God Midland Public Hospital.

We have worked closely with select Perth hospitals to develop a bed-rest care package with contents are suitable and practical for the mothers. The Bed-Rest Care Package includes:

  • Basic hygiene items including toothbrush and toothpaste; shampoo and conditioner; and deodorant.
  • Moisturiser and Lip Balm to combat dry skin as a result of spending weeks or months in hospital.
  • Face wipes to help avoid one more trip to the bathroom.
  • A Tote Bag for your family and friends to carry clothes and other items to and from hospital.
  • Pen and notepad to write down all those questions you have for your obstetrician and mid-wives.
  • Ear plugs to block out the sound of healthy crying babies down the hallway and celebrations around you.
  • An eye mask to help you sleep in hospital.
  • An information booklet 'Hope - A guide to surviving bedrest' to give you practical tips on coping and stories of hope.

Bedrest care packages are distributed to pregnant mothers between 15 and 30 weeks gestation with an expected lengthy stay in hospital due to their high-risk pregnancy.
