Sleeping on the side during pregnancy

Sleeping on the side is often considered the best sleeping position for pregnant women. This position promotes optimal blood circulation, essential for delivering enough oxygen and nutrients to the fetus. It also helps reduce the pressure on the inferior vena cava, which can be compressed when sleeping on the back. This position also minimizes the risk of gastroesophageal reflux and helps alleviate back and pelvic pain.

You can use a full body pillow or a U shape pregancy pillow to improve your comfort and find the perfect position to enjoy restful nights. 

Sleeping on the back while pregnant

While there is no contraindication to sleeping on the back during the early months, this position can become problematic as the pregnancy progresses. As the weight of the uterus increases, this position can exert pressure on the inferior vena cava. This affects blood circulation and can cause vasovagal discomfort (dizziness, lightheadedness, or shortness of breath). Additionally, avoid this position if you suffer from sleep apnea or snoring. It is advisable to avoid this position, especially in the later stages of pregnancy, to maintain good blood circulation and avoid blood pressure problems.

Sleeping on the stomach while pregnant

Sleeping on the stomach is a common position in early pregnancy, but it becomes less comfortable and practically impossible as the abdomen enlarges. In the first trimester, there are generally no risks associated with this position. However, over the months, it is recommended to favor other positions to avoid putting pressure on the uterus and ensure adequate comfort. Know that there is no risk of crushing the baby, as it is protected by amniotic fluid and the thick uterine wall.

Solutions for better sleep during pregnancy

Using specially designed pillows or sleeping partially on the side can be an alternative for those who initially prefer sleeping on the stomach. Pregnancy pillows, often shaped like a U or C, are among the most popular for pregnant women. These accessories provide full-body support, helping to maintain a side sleeping position and support the abdomen. Moreover, they can reduce pressure on the back and hips by using them to support the legs and knees. This type of pillow is very useful for sleeping during pregnancy and for feeding your baby after birth.

You can also use a Pregancy Sleep Solution like a pregnancy belt, to support your growing bump in the safe 'side-sleeping' resting position.
