About the Author

Jessica Fisher lives in Oak Park, California with her husband Brett and is the proud mother of twins, Ella and Ethan as of April 21, 2012.  She started this blog to keep a record of her bed rest journey and share this experience with friends, family, and the general public who might be going through a similar situation. Jessica gave birth to her third child, Brayden on June 4, 2014, and luckily did not have to be on bed rest for that pregnancy. She has continued to document her journey in this blog and is in the process of adapting her story into a book.

Recently, Jessica decided to start her own business and formed Bed Rest Life CoachJessica has been coaching and supporting women on bed rest unofficially for the last three years and decided that it was time to make it official with this new business.

Why is there a Broadway theme?

Jessica lived in New York City for period of time and fell in love with Broadway shows.  All of her posts incorporate her love of Broadway show tunes and how certain songs relate to what she is experiencing.  She encourages her readers to listen to the songs mentioned in order to get a more complete understanding of her story.  Most blog posts contain links for each song so that the reader can watch it being performed.  Enjoy!

    I am currently 2.5 weeks into bed rest secondary to a situation almost identical to yours (fertility treatments, 0.9 cm cervix at 16 weeks, s/p cerclage); although, my husband and I are having triplets. Fortunately, I was able to come home the day after the cerclage was placed, but with my husband working 11 hour days, I feel very isolated as well.

    It’s ironic how I’ve felt all of the emotions you’ve written about and, although neither of us want to be in this situation, I have found your blog comforting and inspirational. You’ve come so far and I only hope my body has the physical strength to carry our babies (3 boys!) as long as you have carried yours.

    Thank you for sharing your story and being a ray of hope for myself as well as many others going through the same thing!
