Bed rest. Hugs. Laughter. Reassure her that you are there for her. Take her to appointments. Be sure the father is involved as much as possible, if he is around. Make her special meals from childhood.
I spent 6 weeks on bedrest. It was very scary being alone. My husband was traveling a lot. For the times when I had a visitor it was so much easier. Help arrange a place for her to lay down during the day and her bedroom is comfortable for the night. Buy her a new nightgown. In other words, she remains your daughter forever and what made her happy and secure when younger will help now. And most of all with that love, be sure that you listen. Being listened to is important to hear her fears. You can't fix it and she doesn't need to dwell on it. Acknowledge it. She will be fine is the most important thing to hear. Support, making lunches ahead, doing the laundry and such is what you can do for her. Wishing her luck. And be sure she doesn't over gain the weight while being inactive. It will make things worse for her. No dieting. Just a balanced diet.
