What is the recommended sleeping position for a woman carrying twins in her 17th week of pregnancy? How can she ensure the comfort and safety of both herself and her babies while sleeping?
Artificial Intelligence Health Assistant's Answer

During the 17th week of pregnancy, it is important for a woman carrying twins to prioritize her comfort and safety while sleeping. The best sleeping position for her and her babies is on the left side. This position helps improve blood circulation, reduces pressure on major blood vessels, and promotes optimal oxygen flow to the placenta. Additionally, using pillows for support between the knees, under the belly, and behind the back can provide extra comfort. It is essential to avoid sleeping on the back or stomach as these positions can restrict blood flow and potentially harm both mother and babies. Consulting with a healthcare provider is always recommended to ensure personalized advice based on individual circumstances.

I agree.. Side sleeping is best and if it feels uncomfortable you can try a small pillow between your belly and the bed... This is how I sleep and it's a huge difference

So this means both the sides r safe?? Left and right??

I think both right and left are safe yes, (I'm in week 21 and sleep in all kinds of positions I can fall asleep in XD I'm always moving around). But from what I've read, sleeping on the left side is best - no pressure against your spine (back), belly being in the way (stomach), or  the liver being smashed (right side)
