Question: Hi, I am pregnant and my friend has suggested me to sleep on the left. Is she right? Are there any special positions to sleep in pregnancy? Also tell me why is it so important? Is lying on my back harmful to the child?

Answer: Hello dr... Congratulations on your pregnancy. Yes your friend is right. You should sleep on your left It would be better because in this position blood and nutrients from your body easily reach the child through the placenta. Keep a pillow between your legs or just bend your knees. Also lying on back is realy not god for any pregnant women because the uterus will grow with time and the weight of it may put immense pressure on the veins and muscles. If you dont sleep on side then start making a habit to do so.

Answer: Please prefer sleeping on sides preferably on left side..as that gives your baby better blood circulation..never sleep on your back as it presses a nerve that can give you breathlessness and giddyness..you shift to any sides.
