Pregnancy and Postpartum Sleep Consultation

Sleep quality is often affected during pregnancy. Starting in the first trimester of pregnancy, more than 50% of pregnant women report difficulty sleeping.
Factors such as hormonal changes, nausea or vomiting, frequent trips to the bathroom during the night, breast pain, cramps, difficulty breathing, lower back pain, heartburn… are some of the factors that most affect the sleep of mothers-to-be.
Sleep plays a fundamental role in the oxygenation of the placenta and the development of the baby, in addition to its essential role in the mother’s physical, emotional and cognitive well-being. Its absence or poor quality leads to a greater propensity to develop gestational diabetes, high blood pressure and pre-eclampsia.
Take care of your sleep and enjoy a peaceful, well-slept pregnancy!
