10 Tips for Better Sleep During Pregnancy

Although pregnancy is the most beautiful thing to experience, at the same time pregnancy is all about back pain, body cramps, nausea, sleep apnea, heartburn, restless leg syndrome, overheating, and frequent urination. It may not be easy for expecting mothers to have undisturbed seamless sleep, but we have come up with a few tips that they can follow to have better sleep.
Avoid having caffeine as much as you can, as harmful as it is for non-pregnant people, it is much more harmful for pregnant ladies. Some of the major sources of caffeine are tea, chocolate, and soft drinks, so no matter how much you crave caffeine, you should stay away as it’ll not only affect your sleep but also the development of your child.
Healthy eating should be your top priority when it comes to pregnancy. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a must. But before you follow any internet diet, consult a good pregnancy dietician. They’ll help you curate the best plan for you and you and your developing baby.
One of the problems that mothers-to-be face is indigestion. This problem occurs because as the size of the uterus increases it puts pressure on the stomach affecting the digestion process. This whole thing can lead to a burning feeling in your body, which wakes you up in the middle of the night. In that, you should avoid eating spicy food and also eating too much all at once. Another thing that you can do is to keep your head 10 to 15 cm above while sleeping. Apart from this, you must share this problem with your doctor as they will have the right medication for this problem.
For human beings, they experience the best sleep when their body is worked out at the end of the day. Now for pregnant women, it can be a bit difficult to exercise, but you can still try to do low-intensity yoga and follow a maternity yoga instructor to help your body get relaxed and get a better sleep.
Breathing exercise is another way you can feel relaxed and lower down anxiety and palpitations that women experience during pregnancy, which adversely affects their sleep. You cannot risk waking up sleep-deprived as it can affect the growth of your child’s brain.

No matter how hard it is for you to fall asleep and have an undisturbed sleep, you must stay away from any kind of sleeping aids. These sleeping aids come with a lot of side effects, plus not much research has been done on the result of such medicines on pregnant women, so it's advisable not to use them anyway.
Sleep in a cool and dark place, because the moment you go to a cool and dark place to relax it automatically signals the brain to get into sleep mode. Along with that, having the same sleeping and waking up time goes a long way in maintaining a good sleep habit, which will help you even in your postpartum phase.
Avoid using technology at all costs, it’ll further elevate the problem of sleeplessness, It is always better to read a book before you go to sleep, as it’ll make you feel asleep better.
Sleeping during pregnancy means you need to have a lot of body support. The best support is provided by pillows.
