New Website Offers Support to the 1 in 4 Pregnant Women Placed on Bed Rest Each Year
Date:2/3/2009 offers both an online community and breaking news for women on bed rest due to high-risk pregnancies

BALTIMORE, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nearly 1 million women in the United States are put on bed rest each year due to pregnancy complications that can result in preterm birth. That's almost 1 out of every 4 pregnant women. Yet, no one expects it when it happens to them, and they soon discover that the days on bed rest are long, lonely, frustrating, and frightening.

The website provides information on bed rest and preterm labor that is current, concise, and easy to understand. " provides information that is up-to-date and reliable, and then gives women a place to talk about it, on the online forum," says Keep 'Em Cookin' founder Angela Davids.

While recovering from preeclampsia and acute kidney failure following the birth of her son, the two-time bed-rester decided to create the website. "By sharing my experiences with preterm labor and by creating a community for all women at risk of preterm birth, I hope that together we can prevent as many preterm births as possible," Davids says.

There are more than 20 potential and known causes of preterm labor. "I want every pregnant woman to know her risk for preterm birth and to be able to recognize the warning signs," says Davids, a former magazine editor and fact-checker. "And when these women are able to seek help in time to stop labor, I want them to have the support of other women who are experiencing the same complications and are on bed rest, too."

Keep 'Em Cookin' is an educational organization that gives pregnant women the greatest opportunity to carry their babies to term by providing the most current information on preterm labor and offering online community support.
