Short Cervix: Can the Cervix Improve With Bedrest?Anne Sommers, Licensed Midwife |29, January 2002
Will the cervix can grow or improve with complete bed rest?
I do not believe that the cervix will grow or improve with bed rest. Bed rest is usually only indicated if there is cramping and/or bleeding in pregnancy. This is a traditional way of offsetting labor. However, many practitioners do not believe bed rest helps. This means that if the pregnancy is going to terminate it will anyway, whether the mother rests or not.
