If you have trouble sleeping, talk to your ND about the possible root causes of your sleep trouble. EMF (electro-magnetic frequency) can disrupt the body’s circadian rhythm and interrupt the regular hormones that regulate our sleep-wake cycles. Relaxing nervine herbs in a tea taken before bed can induce the relaxation response and cue sleep. If your sleep problems are due to stress, consuming adaptogenic herbs to modulate your response to stress can be incredibly helpful.
An alternative to taking botanicals in the forms of teas and capsules is to make yourself a sleepy-time pillow.
Incorporating some of these suggestions into the rhythm of your day will help you get to sleep and stay asleep while you await the arrival of your little one.


Then invariably, there will be times, when although a momma-to-be finds that her body is tired, she is simply unable to sleep. The best thing to do is to turn off the TV, get away from stimulating activities involving computers, cell phones, and other electronics, grab a relaxing book, practice some gentle yoga, have a bath, have a cup of soothing tea, and prepare for sleep. So get away from flickering, bright, artificial lights in the evening while you prepare for sleep. Please see your naturopathic doctor or other primary care physician for sleep problems that are affecting your energy, mood, or productivity at work or home. Insomnia is a very common problem in pregnancy, particularly when there are feelings of anxiety during the day, problems regulating blood sugar, or hormonal imbalances. Create a soothing rhythm for yourself in the evening and stick to it to help your body prepare for and to expect sleep.


This includes getting cell phones and laptops out of the bedroom, but also removing TVs, plug-in lamps and clocks as well.
A battery-powered clock is best as long as it doesn’t shine light in your room while you’re sleeping. Get rid of night lights (yes, this goes for kids too) as they will disrupt your melatonin release.
