Washington: A recent study by a nurse has found that prescribed bed rest has a down side for pregnant women. Judith Maloni, professor at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University, said a comprehensive review of more than 70 evidence-based research articles challenges whether bed rest is healthy for mothers — or their babies. Gaps in research also exist if bed rest harms or benefits the baby, Maloni said. Bed rest for pregnant women experiencing early contractions or other pregnancy problems, such as high blood pressure, multiple babies, potential blood clotting or bleeding, can be prescribed for a few days or a few months.
