Description

You will spend about one third of your life sleeping. Sleep is so vital to your health and the health of your baby. Especially early and later in your pregnancy when you are more prone to fatigue, you will be spending a lot of hours sleeping. The big question is whether there is an ideal position to be sleeping in. In recent years there have been studies making headlines that sleeping on your back is dangerous for you and your baby. This has led to many expecting mothers waking up on their backs and panicking. I want to keep you from having to experience that. This article digs into the pros and cons of different sleeping positions, examines the research on which position is ideal, and digs into the statistics on your risks.
