Question: Can i sleep on my back? Is it hurt my baby?
Answer: Hello dear
When you sleep on your back while pregnant, your abdomen rests on your intestines and major blood vessels. This becomes increasingly uncomfortable as your belly — and baby — grows. The pressure from this position can cause:
backaches,breathing issues,digestive problem,slow blood pressure,hemorrhoids
Sleeping on your back while pregnant can also decrease circulation to your heart and to your baby.
You can follow following best Sleeping Positions During Pregnancy :
1. SOS – Sleeping on Side:
‘SOS’ is the mantra to follow when it comes to following a sleeping position during the first trimester- sleeping on side. If you have been sleeping on your back or your front your entire life, now is the time to adapt some changes.
2. Sleep on the Left Side:
Sleeping on the side (particularly the left side) is ideal as the vena cava, which is concerned with maintaining the supply of blood is located on your right side.
3. Cushion Up:
Placing a pillow under your belly and behind your back can provide a good support when it comes to sleeping position during first trimester of pregnancy.
