Pregnancy bed rest

The pregnancy bed rest benefit is designed to compensate the woman for the loss of her salary during the bed rest leave she took due to risk pregnancy.

The benefit is paid to a working woman who is compelled to be absent from work during pregnancy due to a medical risk to herself or the fetus, caused by the pregnancy, her kind of occupation, her place of work, or how the work is executed - if no other appropriate position is available at her workplace.
