How to Get Quality Sleep When Pregnant
Tips for Pregnant Sleepers Using Wool Bedding
Expectant mothers know getting a good night’s rest when pregnant can be a difficult thing. Many women experience everything from muscle aches to heartburn while trying to sleep, resulting in sleepless night. You need to remain well-rested while providing the best care for your unborn child. If you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant soon, trust The Wool Bed Company to take care of your growing family.
Pregnant mothers have enough to worry about as it is, with countless doctor’s appointments, morning sickness, and changing bodies. You shouldn’t have to worry about getting quality sleep. ECO-Pure™ wool bedding will help you get to sleep fast and stay asleep longer, giving you more energy during the day. The soft, natural fibers adjust to the shape of your body, giving you extra comfort to help fall asleep.
Best Sleep Position for Expectant Mothers
SOS, or Sleep on Side, is considered to be the ideal sleep position for most pregnant women. As the name implies, SOS involves sleeping on the side instead of the back or stomach. This increases the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the baby, especially when sleeping on the mother’s left side. Our wool body pillow makes for a great addition to your bed and will allow you to sleep easier on your side. Keep knees and legs bent to achieve the best circulation, and put an ECO Pure Wool pillow between your legs to get extra comfortable and stay on your side
How Wool Can Help With Pregnancy Side Effects
Throughout the first trimester of pregnancy, lethargy and fatigue can be common side effects. The body boosts the amount of progesterone it produces, leaving you feeling tired. Insomnia can set in, leaving you with little sleep. Our wool bedding products will keep you feeling nice and comfortable so you can get the most out of your night of sleep. Wool and cotton bedding have greater breathability than synthetic materials, reducing discomfort from hot flashes common to pregnant women.
During the second trimester, women often experience heartburn as a result of stomach acid reaching the esophagus because the growing baby is pressing on the stomach. Elevate your head on one of our ECO-Pure™ Wool pillows to allow gravity to keep acid from rising too much. Hugging our wool body pillows can also raise your upper body for better digestion and extra support.
At the start of the third trimester, the baby will start to put a strain on your back and muscles. It’s at this point many doctors recommend women sleep exclusively on their sides if they have not already adopted the SOS sleep system. Allow the therapeutic warmth of a wool mattress topper to gently conform to the contours of your body, relieving pain and stiffness. The wool fibers maintain optimal body temperature, giving your muscles the relief they need after a long day.
Let Your Baby Sleep Soundly on Wool
The Wool Bed Company™ offers more than just bedding and pillows to comfort you during pregnancy. After the baby is born, buy hypoallergenic cotton sheets or bedding for the little one to let them sleep soundly through the night without harmful irritants. Our wool and cotton are left chemically untreated to be toxin free and will be naturally free of mold and mildew.
