Pregnancy and Sleep


Pregnancy brings sleep challenges for many women. Physical symptoms (body aches, nausea, leg cramps, movements of the baby and heartburn), as well as emotional changes (depression, anxiety, worry) can interfere with sleep. Sometimes pregnancy itself can cause the short-term development of a sleep disorder such as restless legs syndrome or sleep apnea.
