Pregnant and Counting Sheep?

With so many changes happening in the body during pregnancy, you’re most likely to be feeling restless when trying to hit the hay.

There are many ways you can improve the quality and quantity of sleep while pregnant – helping to make your nine months as stress-free as possible.

1. Room-Darkening Curtains

Taken from the same remedy that treats headaches and migraines, it works just as well during the difficult stages of pregnancy. A darkened room can help you switch off more easily because you’re less aware or distracted by your surroundings.

A useful way of determining whether your room is dark enough; turn the light off and wait for your eyes to adjust – you should barely be able to see the outline of your hand.

2. Temperature

Most people sleep in bedrooms that are too hot, and what this does is make it much more difficult for your body to turn off.

The ideal bedroom temperature is between 19 and 22 degrees Celsius, so why not invest in a bedroom thermometer to see how yours measures up? If your room is too hot, take a look at our blog on how to beat the heat!

3. Downtime

You wouldn’t let your baby watch television before setting them down to sleep, so don’t do it to yourself. Allow yourself extra time at the end of each day to give your body and mind enough time to wind down and calm before going to sleep.

This is particularly helpful in the first few months of pregnancy and equally beneficial after the baby has arrived. Protecting your first three hours of sleep is key!

4. Sleeping on the right bed

Sleeping on the right bed will help you to get the best rest possible and maximise comfort during pregnancy. An ergonomic bed will adjust to your body’s contours and support your whole body as it changes.

Sleeping on the right bed is so crucial to sleeping well during pregnancy, and indeed, for years to come as a busy mother.

The challenges women face during pregnancy can make sleeping very uncomfortable and back pain is very common during pregnancy. You need a bed or mattress that is going to adapt and change with the changes happening to your body.

Our Ergolife ergonomic beds give shoulder, hip and lower back support – the areas that need the most support during pregnancy. While standard soft mattresses can cause your body to sink and become unsupported, Ergolife provides superior support and full body alignment that can be adjusted to your contours – these world-first ergonomic beds give the ultimate support and comfort that your body craves during pregnancy.

Our ergonomic beds can also be customised to reduce partner disturbance, helping you get the best rest possible when you’re up feeding during the night once baby arrives.
