Hi there, I just have a question: my baby is breech and I am 32 weeks. The baby is on my right side, I am going to start doing some exercises I have seen on the Spinning Babies website and YouTube, but I was wondering if I should be sleeping different. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The Spinning Babies Lady (me!) suggests
I don't care which side you sleep on in general.
Perhps it might be helpful, however, if on the night after a chiropractic appointment, or other body work, that you try to sleep on the side that baby faces for more time than your other side, matching baby's back.
Switch when it's uncomfortable. Sleep is more important than staying awake and trying to sleep with a numb arm or hip, right?
If your doctor demands you sleep on your left side because you have high blood pressure, that's another matter. I'll stay out of that discussion.
For fetal position, the balance is on the inside. Attend to that and which side you sleep on will be less important. With a twist in the lower part of the uterus, trying to move baby by sleeping on the side baby's limbs are on may not work.
