Hi! Yes your doctor has given you the right advise. Bed rest is most important in placenta previa. It has been known to be one of the causes of low birth weight because if there is constant bleeding from the placenta, supply of nutrients to the baby is compromised. Bed rest helps to prevent any bleeding and tries to ensure that your child receives adequate nutrition.
