    Never heard of not being good to recline.
    The only advice given to me was to best sleep on your side and always try to keep your back straight when standing! :)

    I was at Annerley last week for a class, and the midwife (on her own - I didn't ask) - brought up this topic. She said that any position that tilts the pelvis backward encourages the baby to slide into posterior/back to back position, so from 34 weeks onward, we should try to sit in forward leaning positions (or rest on all fours from time to time.) I am trying, though it is hard to maintain this kind of lifestyle and sit fully upright all day when all I want to do is sink into a comfy couch.

    I guess it doesn't matter quite as much when napping, because the impact of gravity is different when lying down - though they still don't encourage lying on your side and leaning backward. Better to kind of lean forward onto your tummy (with a pillow underneath to support baby.)
