Response to No experience, just best wishes.

 

The latest evidence from two very large international studies shows that bedrest, at best, results in the same outcome as "pelvic rest". One study actually showed a negative correlation; in other words, those placed on bedrest had a higher percentage of preterm birth. I think doctors just want to do something and there's not a whole lot they can do, so patients are still placed on bedrest... but the evidence against it is gaining steam. Thank goodness!
