Bed Rest Placenta Previa
No: Placenta previa includes partial or complete coverage of the cervix by the placenta. Bedrest is not necessary unless there is vaginal bleeding or persistent preterm labor.

Not really.: If the diagnosis of placenta previa is made before 20 weeks, some women experience resolution of the morbid placental implantation with time - bedrest is not correcting the problem.

Ultrasound: Ultrasound is the main way to follow a previa. If your previa resolves with time, your labor should be the same as anyone else's. If it doesn't, tests for anemia, clotting factors, and blood availabilty are tests that are performed to be prepared for any emergency at delivery.
