You are often told when you are lying down to lay on your left side. Do you know why? Ideally whatever side favors a good fetal response is the side you need to be on at that present time. But why is the left side the ideal and recommended side when sleeping? Pick out the correct answer below.
- Lying on your left side helps the rich nutrition filled blood supply to go from your heart to the placenta.
- It will relieve pressure off your liver and kidney allowing a greater blood flow to these organs.
- The blood will flow through your body no matter which side to lay on. There is basically no difference.
