  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.

    During pregnancy it's always better to lie on side than in straight position. It improves blood circulation of the baby and placenta as well as it is comfortable to the mother also. Most preferred way is to lie on the left side. Lying the the right position is also good if you are comfortable. Use pillows under or between your knees, at your back if you are more comfortable with them.
    Baby changes it's position in uterus to a comfortable one and there is cushioning of fluid around your baby so in no way your lying down on side will hurt your baby unless you feel uncomfortable.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
