Why Is Sleep Important During Pregnancy?
Hey, glowing moms-to-be! Welcome to the world of sparkles, cravings, mood swings and of course, the much-needed sleep you deserve!!
Pregnancy is like a rollercoaster ride. When you are pregnant, it can be hard to get good sleep in pregnancy at night.
As your body changes, you get bigger, and finding a comfortable sleep position becomes tougher.
Furthermore, you are running to the washroom every 30 minutes and a feeling as small as heartburn can wake you up.
We know it’s tough but try to catch as many as Z’s you can because sleep is important for your health, the baby’s well-being and a healthy pregnancy.
Let’s find out, how expecting mothers can rest their way to a healthier pregnancy by optimizing their habits & maternity clothing choices and what role clothing plays in improving sleep patterns.
When The Baby Kicks, Insomnia Hits Harder!
Everyone keeps telling you that quality sleep is important but this is a whole lot harder with pregnancy sleep stealers like heartburns and leg cramps.
Some reasons that influence sleep disruption, include fear of giving birth, uncomfortable mattresses, excitement and anxiety about being a new mom and even worrying about not getting enough sleep at night.
You thought that was it, there’s a whole symphony of sneaky sleep troublemakers:
- Heart Burn
- Leg cramps
- Not able to turn over when you want to
- The baby moving
- Sore hips
- Feeling sick
- Mood swings
- The baby kicking
- Partner snoring
- Growing belly
- Disruptive dreams
Throughout your pregnancy journey, these factors have the potential to disturb your sleep patterns and may vary over time.
So if you are struggling to get a good night's sleep then you are not alone.
The Dreamy Magic of Sleep during Pregnancy
When we sleep, our body goes through some changes and repairs itself- including tissues, muscles and blood.
Thus, a complete sleep cycle is important for new moms and their growing baby, who are dependent on the extra blood required for their growth.
Researchers have shown that women who sleep less than 6 hours at night have a higher chance of experiencing prolonged labor, giving birth to a premature baby, or a baby with less-than-normal weight.
Quality Sleep- The Key to a Happy and Healthy You!!
1- Get Your Glow On
Who needs a highlighter when you have got the ultimate beauty secret with you- SLEEP!!

Sleeping during pregnancy can rejuvenate and recharge your body, giving you that fabulous glow that might earn you compliments all day long.
So say goodbye to your tired puffy eyes and say hello to your glowing and radiant skin by tracking & improving your sleep cycle on a regular basis.

While you doze off in your sleep, your baby inside is getting some perks too.
Because pregnancy sleep is like a vitamin boost for your baby’s entire development, these hormones are released at night and sprinkle their magic during those sweet slumber hours.
