Why pregnant women deserve a new mattress

Why pregnant women deserve a new mattress

Sleeping on an old worn out mattress can cause backaches, insomnia and other discomforts. So can pregnancy. If you combine the two, you're in for nine months of poor sleep quality as well as potential health problems.

In fact, your old mattress may be crawling with dust mites, allergens and bacteria.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, awkward sleeping positions during pregnancy can lead to insomnia, shallow breathing, digestive problems, decreased blood circulation and low blood pressure.

Pregnant women already have a lot to focus on without having to sleep on an old bed – they deserve a new mattress.

What kind of mattress is best for pregnant women?

After you're about 20 weeks pregnant, or sooner, you may find it more and more difficult to find a comfortable sleeping position. According to BabyCenter, at 20 weeks, the average baby is about the length of a large banana.

An older mattress might sag and cause shooting back pain. A new mattress, such as the Serta® Perfect Sleeper®, provides the support you need to get a better night's sleep. Plus, this mattress is made with Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam to reduce tossing and turning. With a foam core mattress, you won't be as bothered by your partner's movements during the night.

Morning sickness symptoms may include excessive sweating, so it's important to use a liquid-resistant lining to protect your mattress from stains, which will void its warranty. Make sure to organize your nightstand with lots of comfort items to help you reduce the annoyance of morning sickness.

How can pillows help pregnant women sleep?

After you find the perfect mattress for your needs, the right pillows will make your new bed perfect. Sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees or under your abdomen can make sleeping much more comfortable.

Pillows such as those in the Ashley Signature collection will provide comfort and support throughout your pregnancy and well into the future.

Each woman has different sleep needs throughout her pregnancy. The best way to find the perfect new mattress and pillow set is to visit a store and try some out. Ordering bedding online without trying it first could lead to an even more uncomfortable sleep than your old bed.
