Stop sleeping on your head


I was told by my dr while pregnant to always try and sleep on my left side as it lets the most oxygen get to the baby out of positions.

I flip flop all night.

Left is the best, but I sleep on the right also.

It is safe. They say to sleep on your left side if you can get comfortable but if you can’t you can’t.

I’ve slept on my left, right, and back :woman_shrugging: My OB didn’t have problem with it and my son is completely healthy

Back ,side , standing, whenever n wherever u can


I slept what ever way I could get comfortable and all 4 of my kids are completely healthy none my ob told me I couldn’t sleep on my right. I even slept on my belly tell I couldn’t anymore

I sleep on both sides. They say your left is the best, but if I slept only on one side I would be hurting SO bad.

I always slept how I wanted to!

I just slept what was most comfortable for me :woman_shrugging: which was tossing and turning all night so I slept on both sides

It is best to sleep on the left during pregnancy says doctors but it’s all up to you. Sleep in any way that you’re comfortable & not harming the baby.

I toss and turn all night and not had any problems I wouldn’t worry too much about it as long as you don’t lie on your back for too long because it can strain your back x

Yes you can sleep on your right side or back, unless your midwife or ob tells you to sleep on your left side (usually because of high blood pressure).

I fall sleep on my right and flop to the left. Was told back sleeping was bad

U can sleep what ever way u want I slept on my stomach half my pregnancy and my son is just fine

I generally sleep on the right, but that’s literally only what’s is comfortable.

I think doctors recommended sleeping on your left
