Pregnancy Insomnia


Insomnia is one of the most common symptoms of pregnancy that women often just suffer through because the usual fixes are not safe in pregnancy… I would argue that they’re not safe for anyone but we will let that go for now. 

If you’re pregnant and having insomnia, I suggest giving tart cherry juice a try! The benefit may be surprising and this is a completely safe natural method for improving sleep. 

Tart cherry juice has been shown to increase melatonin levels. Melatonin is the hormone that helps initiate sleep. Added benefit… It is also high in magnesium and has anti-inflammatory properties that could reduce the incidence of those darn leg cramps… another common nighttime symptom in pregnancy. 

When looking for tart cherry juice you want to make sure you’re getting one without any added sugars. Darby Partner CPM of Hawaii Holistic Midwifery recommends Purium’s tart cherry juice called Apothe-Cherry. Here is a link with more information or to purchase. 

Cheers to a Good Night Sleep!
