Preventing Sleep Apnea During Pregnancy
Obstructive Sleep Apnea Is Related To Excessive Weight Gain In Pregnant Women
Sleep apnea in pregnancy is quite common and can affect more than 25 percent of pregnant mothers in the third trimester. A study has linked sleep apnea during pregnancy with gestational diabetes and pretension. There is a higher risk if the pregnant woman is overweight, or there is excessive weight during pregnancy. Lack of sleep and sleep habits during pregnancy are related to weight gain. It is also important to maintain a comfortable sleeping position to avoid obstructive sleep apnea, which can be, in the case of pregnant women, lying on their side. This position also lessens the pressure of the baby on the organs. More Information click here.
