Approximately 20 percent of women are put on bed rest at some point in their pregnancies (either complete bed rest, or partial bed rest, such as restrictions from work or household activities, or restrictions from sex).

I think the most logical explanation is that the women who were put on bedrest were put on bedrest BECAUSE they were more likely to deliver early. Unless they controlled for the underlying reason the women were prescribed bedrest, this article isn't really giving us much good information.

I find this article useless......it states that women put on bed rest are more likely to give birth prematurely...well of COURSE!!!! That is why they are put on bed rest to try to prevent that! and of COURSE women who remain active (aka not put on bed rest because of problems) are less likely...well of course cause they had no reason to be put on bed rest! I for one was on bedrest with my oldest due to high blood pressure and early contractions....I went on and carried her til 40+ weeks! I do not think that would have happened had they not put me on bed rest

According to my experience women put on bed rest are likely to have painful labor.If one is active throughout the labor then the labor will be less painful.But everyone is not put on bed rest only those needed are advised.

I agree with childtocherish. My older sister would take a 30 minute walk every morning a month before she gave birth. My niece was born without any hassle.

I don't know about the less painful...my oldest was way less painful than my second labor (both drug free) I was on bedrest with the first and the second was WAY more painful IMO. I do not think you can judge a pregnancy by how much you move, how many you've had, by other peoples experiences...every pregnancy is different.
