Most women are able to stay active throughout pregnancy, but each year, nearly 20% of pregnant women are prescribed bed rest for at least some part of their pregnancy. Bed rest during pregnancy can range from spending most of the day lying or sitting on your couch to staying in a hospital bed closely monitored by hospital staff. Although the degree of bed rest and reasons for bed rest in pregnancy differ, the goals are essentially the same: to help you have a successful pregnancy and healthy baby. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about bed rest during pregnancy, why you need it, what it means, and much more.
