Reduce Risk Of Stillbirth

ADVERTISEMENTS



There is one thing pregnant women can do to cut their risk of stillbirth by half and that’s to sleep on their side during the third trimester.

The Midlands and North of England Stillbirth Study (MiNESS) examined more than 1,000 pregnancies – 291 that ended in a stillbirth and 735 that ended in a live birth – and found that women who slept on their back were 2.3 times more likely to experience a late stillbirth (after 28 weeks gestation) compared to those who slept on their side.
