Study says side-sleeping safest

It seems like every day there’s another study that says pregnant women should do [insert-whatever-here] to have the best/strongest/most powerful baby. Well here’s one that requires minimal effort from expecting moms who already sleep on their side. A British study of over 1,000 women found that sleeping on one’s side is 2.3x less risky than sleeping on one’s back. But don’t stress if you wake up in the middle of the night on your back after having fallen asleep on your side. The study authors literally say, “What I don’t want is for women to wake up flat on their back and think ‘oh my goodness I’ve done something awful to my baby’.” Just turn over, you may be able to breathe better that way anyway.
