When you’re pregnant one of the most uncomfortable things to do is sleep. Some pregnant women are in so much discomfort at night that they find sleep difficult. While some sleeping positions for pregnant women can be uncomfortable, others help you sleep better.
These are the best sleeping positions for pregnant women
Before you go to bed, make sure you’re comfortable. Wear loose pajamas with a light cotton material for maximum comfort and make sure your clothing is not too tight or too stiff. This way, you won’t be tossing and turning all night and you’ll get a better night’s sleep.
Sleep on your left side
Sleeping on your side instead of your back or stomach is better for you especially if you’re heavily pregnant. You won’t be stressing the baby and it’ll reduce the back and leg pain from laying on on your back to sleep. It’s even best to sleep on your left side to improve blood circulation for both you and your baby.
Use a pregnancy pillow
Pregnancy pillows are good if you’re not used to sleeping on your sides and are finding it uncomfortable. A pregnancy pillow provides support for your baby bump, back, neck, and knees. To get a pregnancy pillow, visit Intemporel Nurseries, a baby room interior design firm.
