The Doctors: Sleep Positions & Your Health
Could sleeping on your left side really improve your health? The real answer is that it simply depends on who you are. People with heartburn or acid reflux could benefit from sleeping on their left side. When you’re pregnant, you want to sleep on your left side because it allows for more flow through the vena cava or the blood vessel that leads to the placenta. When the baby is born, the baby should always sleep on their back.
