Sleeping positions to induce labor

Sleeping positions to induce labor
While there are no specific sleeping positions that have been scientifically proven to induce labor, certain positions may help make you more comfortable and relaxed during late pregnancy.
  1. Side-lying: Sleeping on your left side may help improve blood flow to the placenta and may also help reduce swelling in your legs, ankles, and feet.

  2. Elevated: Propping yourself up with pillows or sleeping in a recliner may help ease heartburn and make it easier to breathe, particularly if you are experiencing shortness of breath.

  3. Pelvic tilt: Lying on your back and elevating your hips with pillows may help take pressure off your lower back and pelvis, and may also help encourage the baby to move down into the pelvis.
