    Lessen stillbirth deaths by sleeping on your side.

    Women advised to sleep on side to help prevent stillbirth

    A study of just over 1,000 women found the risk doubles if women go to sleep on their backs in the third trimester.

    The study looked into 291 pregnancies that ended in stillbirth and 735 women who had a live birth.

    Researchers say the position which women fall asleep in is most important - and they should not worry if they are on their back when they wake up.

    About one in 225 pregnancies in the UK ends in stillbirth and the study authors estimate that about 130 babies' lives a year could be saved if women went to sleep on their side.

    OK, I am just a mere man, but sometimes I wonder where they get this stuff from.

    Surely human and animal females have evolved to be able to carry a baby in any position they need to; after all many millions of years have passed since mammals were first produced by nature and nature usually gets these things right after so many years of evolution trial and error.

    Anybody ?

    Well, I hope that plenty of women read this as it sounds like good advice.

    I would surmise that over the many millennia the mammals - including the human ones - would have evolved to be able to carry pregnancies in just about every and any way while sleeping.

    It is still hard to go against this advice from experts.

    I had heard about this one too.

    I don't know where they get the idea from, but I am sure that they believe what they say is right.

    Here's where it came from:

    Researchers can't say for certain why the risk of stillbirth is increased - but there is a lot of data that suggests when a woman is lying on her back, the combined weight of the baby and womb puts pressure on blood vessels which can then restrict blood flow and oxygen to the baby.

    Edward Morris, from the BJOG, said the new research was "extremely welcome" .
