Q:

I have heard that we should be sleeping on our left as oxygen and nutrients reach the baby easily. Since i have Scietica pain on my left , i have to sleep on the right. I am confused wat should i do ?



......

same problem wid me

puchu

no problem,u can sleep in any side , bt not in ur back,half of the night i sleep on my left and half of the night i sleep on my right. it is impossible to sleep continiously on ur left

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello preeti..
if u r not comfortable in left lateral position, then plz use soft pillows...pillows helps in supporting n comforting..keep one pillow beside belly and one between the two legs and one in back this helps u in sciatica too..if u wanna change direction then adjust pillows right side too..

Dhara Popat

Preeti Cholkar hie dear..  you can sleep on both the sides..  flip the sides and as Dr.  shilpitha said you can also use pillows for the comfort.  tc dear :)
