Will I Be Put On Bed Rest If I Have Previa Placenta
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.

They may want to do a follow up ultrasound in a month or two. Congrats on your pregnancy! ...Read more

Not normal/healthy: either one. With any lack of use of muscles, both our muscles & brain coordination for effective use decline. However, with such limited information, it is difficult to offer much help. Why the rest, brace, crutches in the first place? Build, previous capabilities & activities, known absence of health issues? ...Read more
