What you will learn:
- Try lying on your side, using pillows between your legs to support yourself and promote sleep
- Lying on your left improves blood flow to the placenta (more nutrients for the baby!)
- But you don’t need to stay in this position all night
- Try massaging your lower spine if you can reach (or – preferably – ask for a message), this may help you drift to sleep.
