Chat on bed rest
Many of you have had difficult pregnancies that have included bed rest. A health care provider may tell a mom to stay in bed due to spotting, early contractions or other signs of preterm labor. Conditions like high blood pressure, bleeding or carrying multiples may increase the risk of going into preterm labor. In cases of cervical insufficiency (CI), when the cervix opens before it should, bed rest may ease pressure on the cervix.
Join us for a chat on bed rest. Share your experience and tell us about the different things that helped keep you sane during this period. Our guest will be Angela Davids from Keep ‘Em Cookin. Jump in and ask questions any time. You’ll find us on Twitter @modhealthtalk, Thursday Nov. 7th at 1 PM ET. Be sure to use #pregnancychat to fully participate. We look forward to chatting with you then.
