Often during pregnancy, the expectant-Mum would be tossing in bed trying to get comfortable before falling asleep. Unfortunately, her regular sleeping positions may not be effective during pregnancy.
There are many reasons for the discomfort, but there are some sleeping positions that can be tested out to get that much-needed slumber.
🔵 Why doesn’t normal sleeping positions work anymore?
A pregnant woman’s body goes through a series of changes which disrupts usual sleep patterns.
Disruption includes - Back aches, Heartburns and Shortness of Breath.
The expectant-Mum should avoid sleeping on her back. When laying down on her back, her baby bump would now rest on her intestines and some major blood vessels (the aorta and vena cava). This can lead to backaches, breathing difficulties and digestive system issues.
Avoid sleeping on stomach. Sensibly, as the expectant-Mum progress farther along in pregnancy, her abdomen would grow larger which makes it more difficult to lay on her stomach.
THE BEST SLEEP POSITION during pregnancy is the "Side-Sleep-Posture".
It would be even better for the expectant-Mum to sleep – laying down on her LEFT side. This will improve the flow of blood and nutrients getting to the placenta and her baby.
To enhance the "Side-Sleep-Posture", keep knees bent, and put a pillow between both legs.
For back aches, use the "Side-Sleep-Posture", and insert a pillow just under the baby bump.
For heartburns, prop up the upper body with pillows.
In late pregnancy, women tend to experience shortness of breath. The expectant-Mum can use the "Side-Sleep-Posture" with pillows propped around her body.
Keeping in mind that one may not stay in a single position all night, and rotating positions is normal.
