Healthy Sleep for Two

Each stage in a woman’s life brings its own challenges, Sleep can be one of those challenges during pregnancy. Hormone levels begin within the first trimester. Fluctuating hormones can cause discomfort in areas of weight, fluids, restless legs, Gastroesophageal Reflux and Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Dreams can be very vivid and disturbing. All these things can disrupt your sleep. Both you and the baby need the rest. Did you know that “Sleep plays a major role in memory, learning, appetite, mood and decision making”? These vital functions are the very reason you have chosen to have your “pregnancy your way”. The collected habits and behaviors that we choose to promote during this precious time can promote a positive rest for both you and the baby. Be sure to consult your physician or midwife before taking any herb or medications to aid in sleeping. Remember you are making decisions for two. I listed an article below on this very topic so you can make an informed decision and a strategic plan for the best outcome. Make yourself proud with your performance!

Welcome to My
Pregnancy Your Way Supporter Group!

One of the things I learned as a student and resident, is that in obstetrics you can have a lot to say about your outcome. In other words, you can pick your outcome much of the time—not all of the time—but certainly about 90% of the time. Pregnant women so often feel they shouldn’t question the expert, the obstetrician. My goal is to provide pregnant women a safe arena where they can freely ask questions about their choices in their pregnancy and delivery. I can’t offer you medical advice, but I can tell you about my experiences with the 6000 babies I delivered.

In today’s medical environment, it is very difficult to raise questions about your choices of care. I want to encourage women to have the confidence to trust in themselves and the decisions they make about their care.

Obstetrics isn’t about disease.

It’s about preserving your and your baby’s good health.
