Sleep Disorders in Pregnancy
Pregnant women are at a higher risk for sleep apnea, a condition where breathing stops during sleep. RLS is a condition that causes an uncomfortable feeling in the legs and an urge to move them, interfering with sleep. Hormonal changes during pregnancy can cause night sweats, leading to disrupted sleep. Aches and pains in the joints and muscles can make it difficult to get comfortable and fall asleep .Gastrointestinal issues like Heartburn, nausea, and other digestive problems can interfere with sleep during pregnancy.
