Most of the women around are prescribed a bed rest of 10 minutes and they themselves stretch it to quite few hours whilst making it a habit of resting for long hours of the next few days. On the other side, most of the medical experts often ask their clients to resume with their daily routine in the process and not look around for too much rest which might prove harmful for the whole process.
