Doctor: Thank you for your question. From your description, it is ascertained that your wife’s pregnancy is high risk, and the b ed rest she has been prescribed is to reduces the chances of miscarriage. The restroplacental collection commonly refers to bleeding behind the placenta, as found on ultrasonography. Retroplacental hemorrhaging (bleeding) can occur when if the placenta becomes partially or completely detached from the uterus. A detached placenta during pregnancy is referred to as Abruptu placentae, and is a life threatening condition to the baby and mother. It is possible that your wife is experiencing a partial plactental abruption which requires her to take the list of medications as well as have bed rest for the duration of her pregnancy. This will assist in the adequate placental nutrition of the growing fetus, along with reducing the risk of a complete abruption. Please strictly follow these instructions to ensure the life of your baby and any adverse complications with you wife. We hope this information has helped you.AskTheDoctor.com wishes you and your wife a safe an uncomplicated delivery of a healthy baby.
