Good Sleeping Position While Pregnant?
, I slept a little lascivious. So when we sleep do not realize whether the stomach is squeezed right or left. Do you think the danger is not for the fetus when the mother is careless while sleeping?
Hello Oji, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Sleeping position that is highly recommended to do during pregnancy is the sleeping position tilted on one side of the body, may go to the right or left, but it is best to tilt towards the left side of the body. This is recommended because when the mother is tilted towards the left side, it can help increase blood flow from the mother's body into the fetal placenta so as to increase the nutritional intake for the fetus.
Sleeping position that is not recommended to do during pregnancy is the supine position or prone position. Supine position is not recommended because this position can cause pain in the back and can cause shortness of breath during pregnancy. While the prone position is not recommended because it can interfere with the process of abdominal enlargement during pregnancy and this can have a negative impact on the fetus because it can cause stunted growth and development in the uterus.
As long as you do not do the two positions that are not recommended to be done during pregnancy, your fetus will not experience disturbances, but if you do the wrong sleeping position, especially prone, then over time it may be able to disturb your fetus. For a while, start sleeping in a lying position to the left side, you can also try to give a barrier during your sleep to keep the sleeping position that you can do only rely on one side of the body only (tilted left or right only).
I hope this helps.
