high risk OB support
Supporting moms with pregnancies at risk for pre-term delivery results in better mental health and healthier babies.
Impact Since 2011
Pregnant Women Supported on Hospital Bed Rest
We only target hospitals with designated level III or IV NICUs, meaning they admit women with the highest-risk pregnancies and treat the most critical premature infants.
The majority of our 150+ volunteer workforce has either been on hospital bed rest or is the parent of a NICU graduate. They are phenomenal volunteers and exceptional resources for HRH families.
Hospital staff identifies eligible patients as those placed on long-term hospital bed rest. Priority is given to patients with the most severe pregnancy complications and bed rest restrictions.
HRH Volunteers deliver Bed Rest Baskets to patients containing every item a mom-to-be needs to survive long-term hospital bed rest. The items we include are not provided by hospitals and ensure every patient’s basic needs are met so the patients can focus on a healthy mom and baby.
HRH Volunteers deliver the hope of leaving the hospital with a healthy baby by providing patients with encouraging stories of past HRH babies. We also offer ongoing patient support during and after their stay in the hospital.
After discharge, patients are encouraged to complete ongoing HRH surveys sharing their baby’s long-term development and health.
