benefits of bed rest
17 Replies
droilly81 - October 20

most of us see bed rest as something that is totally lying down but it is not like that in the real picture. it is a case to case basis and it will not really last for 9 months, usually only during a certain trimester. if talk about serious cervical disorder, then maybe total bed rest maybe needed. in your own experience, what are the benefits of having a bed rest during pregnancy?

 

MarieLD - October 20

I don't have any experience yet but so far I have read and heard some mothers going through this situation due to high blood pressure or weak cervix.Staying in bed would help the cervix relax and provide better blood flow to the placenta.

great point you have there MarieLD. i just wanted to share to all mothers that having bed rest is not really boring or something to worry about right?

 

HEAVENKNOWS - October 20

Well having a bed rest can give the mother more time to relax. For cases when the pregnancy is at risk due to low lying placenta and would really need to have a bed rest.

My aunt is advised to have bedrest and it sure help a lot to save the baby. She has low amniotic fluid at 23 weeks gestation and it is the only thing that help her to deliver a healthy baby.

that's nice to know anthony. for how long did she have to be on bed rest?

 

MarieLD - November 9

This procedure is quite simple but difficult to do.You just can imagine how tiresome it would be to be just lying all day.

I think I will love this advise because in my stage now I just want to sleep or lay down all day and not being able to go to work.

Angela16- You should be a little careful about always sleeping or lying down.It is not advisable either to always sleep or lay down.

WHEN BEING ADVISED FOR A BED REST WHILE PREGNANT, IT SHOULD BE SPECIFIED ON THE KIND OF BED REST. THERE ARE LIKE THREE TYPES OF BED REST, THE MODIFIED, STRICT AND COMPLETE BED REST.

I see, so what's the difference of the 3 types?

 

HOPE - December 16

MODIFIED - CERTAIN HOURS ARE BEING SET FOR RESTING OR TO BE IN BED, CAN ALSO WORK BUT SHOULD BE SITTING DOWN AND REST ON THE DESK.

STRICT - BE IN BED AND ONLY UP WHEN GOING TO THE RESTROOM.

COMPLETE - USUALLY BEING HOSPITALIZED.

My office mate was advised for a strict bed rest. That is her worry for not being able to report for work anymore.

 

silverhair - December 17

Well at least she is not being hospitalized during the pregnancy. I think that is the most difficult part to handle.

Now that I stopped from working in order to focus on my future pregnancy I think I will be experiencing the benefits of bed rest. I am just not sure yet of the type that I will be advised with.

Why do you need to have a bed rest Katrina? What is the cause of your miscarriage?

 

kAtRiNa - December 18

My uterus is weak in handling the growing baby so I need to be extra careful and the only solution to help keep the baby is through bed rest.
