Answer: Hi The best sleep position during pregnancy is sleep on side. Even better is to sleep on your left side. Sleeping on your left side will increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta and your baby.Keep your legs and knees bent, and put a pillow between your legs.If you find that you are having problems with back pain, use the sleep on side position, and try placing a pillow under your abdomen as well.If you are experiencing heartburn during the night, you may want to try propping your upper body with pillows.In late pregnancy, you may experience shortness of breath. Try lying on your side or propped up with pillows.Sleeping on your back: This can cause problems with backaches, breathing, the digestive system, hemorrhoids, low blood pressure and cause a decrease in circulation to your heart and your baby.This is a result of your abdomen resting on your intestines and major blood vessels (the aorta and vena cava).Sleeping on your stomach: When you are farther along in your pregnancy, your abdomen undergoes physical changes and makes it more difficult for you to lay on you
