Pregnancy Bed Rest: 10 Reasons Why Your Doctor Could Prescribe It!

Bed rest seems like a great idea – until you're actually put on bed rest. After a few days, you may find that you quickly run out of things to do. What are some reasons why a doctor would recommend bed rest? There are multiple reasons:

  1. preterm labor
  2. high blood pressure
  3. placenta problems
  4. vaginal bleeding
  5. growth problems
  6. multiples
  7. threatened miscarriage
  8. previous miscarriage
  9. preterm baby
  10. incompetent cervix

If you're ordered on bed rest, get specific restrictions for what you're able to do and not do. Be patient. This too shall pass!
