Mamas on Bedrest: Pessaries as a treatment for Cervical Insufficiency

September 29th, 2014

Hello Mamas!

In today’s video blog, I am discussing the use of pessaries for the treatment of cervical insufficiency. In answering a question from Mama on Bedrest Rose from our Facebook Community, I share the background on pessaries (typically used for treatment of bladder prolapse and urinary incontinence), how some Obstetricians are using them for cervical insufficiency and what the current research says about efficacy. THIS IS IN NO WAY A RECOMMENDATION FOR YOU TO GET A PESSARY!! If you think that you may be a candidate for a pessary, you may want to share this video with and talk with your healthcare provider.
