Pregnancy is a time of transition and change for a woman’s body. However, these changes can also lead to difficulty sleeping. A woman may experience many different types of sleep disorder symptoms throughout her pregnancy, particularly as it progresses. During early pregnancy, many women report insomnia: difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep throughout the night. Insomnia often leads to daytime sleepiness and frequent napping to make up for lost sleep. There are many solutions to safely and effectively help pregnant women get the sleep they need. Although sleep medication should not be taken, other remedies such as herbal teas, warm milk, and listening to soft music can promote healthier sleep. If home remedies are not helping you sleep during pregnancy, talk to your physician or a sleep specialist to find a solution that works for you.
