Abstract: No. Strict bed rest in the hospital for pregnant women with preeclampsia does not appear to lower rates of perinatal mortality, neonatal mortality, or neonatal morbidity, including preterm birth, endotracheal intubations, or neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) admissions (strength of recommendation: B, based on 2 randomized controlled trials [RCT] and extrapolations from 2 RCTs of pregnant patients with nonproteinuric hypertension).
