At each stage of pregnancy us mums-to-be are wrestling (it seems that way sometimes!) with different symptoms. Jamie and I met with naturopath and sleep expert, Dave Gibson to discuss the trimesters of pregnancy. Dave gives us both some great advice, from the foods to eat to help the feelings of morning sickness to relaxation techniques to help you sleep better in the first trimester and how to help restless legs to why you should look out for snoring and sleep apnoea in the third trimester. Some of the advice is eye opening and I’ve definitely been taking it on board!
