What the experts say about pregnancy and sleep position
Pregnant women may find sleep to be the most frustrating and life-impacting issue of carrying a baby. According to the National Sleep Foundation "Some sleeping positions may not be as safe for pregnant women and the growing fetus as others. ...Throughout your pregnancy, you should avoid sleeping on your back. While it may be safe during your first trimester, the biggest no-no with resting this way is that it causes your increasingly heavy abdomen and uterus to press down on the major vein that works to return blood from your lower body to your heart. ...The best way to sleep through the night is to “sleep on your side,” particularly on your left side. This allows for the maximum amount of blood flow for you and the growing fetus, and it doesn’t put pressure on your liver."
