[h=2]Sleeping position during pregnancy[/h]
  • First trimester: From the very beginning of first Pregnancy Trimester you must start to sleep on your left. This position improves blood circulation and facilitates smooth flow of nutrients to your foetus. For more comfort, you can also keep extra pillows under your belly and between the knees.
  • Second trimester: During second trimester, sleeping with elevating head and neck is more comfortable. Besides being comfortable this position also prevent stomach acid to come up.
  • Third trimester: Avoid lying on your back for longer durations. Sleeping on the left side is recommended in third trimester as this position facilitates blood flow to your foetus and uterus.
