Pregnancy calls for a great responsibility to be undertaken by a woman. This is the time when you need to be extra careful about your health and lifestyle.

Many women have the tendency of sleeping on their stomach and this activity has different consequences at different stages of pregnancy.
Impact during early days of pregnancy
