The Power of Paying It Forward: How Small Acts Can Make a Big Impact

We don’t know who needs to hear this, but YOU deserve to indulge in the little things that make you happy that provide you opportunities for professional growth as well as helping another. You want a bowl of ice cream? Go right ahead. You wish you could have assistance getting your name out there for your hobby? Be our guest! We are here to help you do just that... but before you do, we want to share how working with MomsCo, can benefit on High Risk Pregnancy Patients on bedrest at the same time...

Distraction: Hobbies can provide a welcome distraction from the stress and anxiety of being in the hospital. Engaging in a hobby can help patients focus on something positive and take their mind off their worries.

  1. Sense of control: When patients are on bedrest, they often feel like they have lost control of their lives. Engaging in a hobby can give them a sense of control and accomplishment. This can help boost their self-esteem and confidence.

  2. Relaxation: Hobbies such as reading, knitting, or coloring can be very relaxing and calming. This can help patients reduce their stress levels and improve their sleep quality.

  3. Socialization: Hobbies can provide an opportunity for patients to connect with others who share their interests. This can help reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness, which are common during hospital stays.

  4. Sense of purpose: Engaging in a hobby can give patients a sense of purpose and motivation. This can help them maintain a positive outlook and stay focused on their recovery.

Some examples of hobbies that can be done while on bedrest include reading, writing, drawing or coloring, knitting or crocheting, playing games, listening to music or podcasts, and practicing meditation or yoga (with the approval of their healthcare provider). It is important to consult with a healthcare provider before engaging in any new activities during a high-risk pregnancy.
