Medics: bed rest is dangerous for pregnant women
It turns out that bed rest threatens the health of expectant mothers and their unborn children. This hypothesis was expressed by American academics from a medical center in Delaware.
Some doctors recommend to observe bed rest while waiting for a child. However, such a regimen is often advised to women who suffer from beats, high blood pressure, preeclampsia, or women with a shortened cervix and an enlarged cervix to prevent preterm labor.
True, the new experiment showed that such a period of inactivity may increase the risk of weakening of muscle and bone mass, as well as lead to the formation of blood clots in the lungs and blood clots in the legs.
A group of scientific researchers notes that bed rest can affect the baby's weight at birth, with the result that newborns will suffer from a lack of body weight. Moreover, women who adhere to bed rest are likely to give birth ahead of time.
