Sleeping Position During Preganancy

 There are so much to learn during a pregnancy. Recently, I had also know that sleeping position is one of the important things to learn and to do during pregnancy. 

And there are so much to learn about ensuring a better sleep as well as ensuring the safety of your little ones and yourself. During this pregnancy; I become more conscious and to read up more as age catches up and I hope I can have a natural delivery with ease. 

Sleeping position is one of the things to watch and it is recommended to sleep on your left side as the blood flow will be better to your body. Sleeping on your left side is often referred to as the “ideal” scenario during pregnancy.

Positioning yourself on the left side of your body allows for optimal blood flow from the inferior vena cava (IVC).

This large vein runs parallel to your spine on the right side and carries blood to your heart and, in turn, to your baby.

Sleeping on your left side also takes the pressure off your liver and your kidneys. This means more room to function properly, helping with swelling issues in your hands, ankles, and feet.
