Bed rest is prescribed regularly during pregnancies to treat or prevent some complications. Bed rest differs from woman to woman and from pregnancy to pregnancy and some circumstances require more bed rest than others. The amount of bed rest varies from simple home rest to controlled rest in the hospital.
Sometimes a doctor can prescribe that a woman should spend the whole pregnancy at bed rest. It is sometimes difficult because you still want to have things ready for the new baby. Bed rest keeps you from working and taking care of the daily things at home. It is normal to worry about the baby and your own health. With careful observation by your doctor, bed rest will help you to have a complication-free pregnancy and delivery.
