Sleep position during pregnancy
Sleeping position during pregnancy is very important for the healthy birth of child and for the mother as well. Sleeping on right side or on back is not good for mother and for the child both.
Sleeping on the back or right side, rather than the left, doubled the risk – but only to almost four in 1,000. Left-side lying aids blood flow to the baby, as the mother’s major blood vessels are unhindered by a heavy womb.
Ms Daghni Rajasingam of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists said: “There are many factors which are linked to still-birth including obesity, increasing maternal age, ethnicity, congenital anomalies and placental conditions. A significant number are unexplained”
Further studies are still going on to find out other major reason due to which child or mother can lost their lives during the last days of pregnancy, and there is intensive care needed to care about these things.
