Insomnia, restless leg syndrome, snoring and sleep apnoea – these are just some of the common sleep problems that can occur during pregnancy! On top of that there are the general aches and pains, worrying about sleeping in the right position, anxiety over the arrival of the new baby, not to mention the oh so frequent bathroom visits! Yes, sleep during pregnancy is a challenge. Sleep after the baby’s arrival is even more of a challenge – but for completely different reasons! This talk will discuss the challenges of sleep, both pre-natal and post-natal and how to manage it in the best way possible. It will give practical tips on how to get the best sleep possible during these challenging times.
And what about the secrets of getting your baby to ‘sleep through the night’?

Research shows that babies who learn to sleep well during the first year of life are much less likely to experience sleep problems later on, not to mention it being essential for their growth and development. Simple, yet affective techniques to get your baby sleeping happily.
