|Researchers are looking into how new mothers can rebuild muscles and strengthen their stamina after their weeks of bed rest during pregnancy.
A study is to take place at Case Western Reserve University's Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, which will test new exercises and educational programmes aimed at helping women learn how to manage their recovery after bed rest and birth.
The research is being carried out by Judith Maloni, a professor of nursing at the school, who has been studying the effects of bed rest for almost two decades.
