Avoiding pregnancy back ache

WebMd has an interesting article on Maintaining Proper Body Mechanics during pregnancy. It is actually from the Cleveland clinic which is among the best hospitals for in USA for 2006. The article has many useful tips and advices about what positions to adopt to avoid strain on your back. There's a bit about how pillows can ease the pain when lying down

"some doctors recommend that pregnant women lie on their left side in the third trimester to allow for the best blood flow to the fetus and to the uterus and kidneys. Because your liver is on the right side of your body, lying on the left side also helps keep the uterus off that large organ.No matter what position you lie in, a pillow should be under your head, but not your shoulders, and should be a thickness that allows your head to be in a normal position to avoid straining your back. You may also want to put a pillow between your legs for support. Use your pillows to discover a comfortable sleeping position. There are several special "pregnancy" pillows on the market that may help you sleep better"
