Pregnant Women Who Snore May Deliver Smaller Babies
Pregnant women have a very high risk of delivering very small babies according to research undertaken on sleep disorders. Other effects of sleep disorders on pregnant women are poor delivery outcomes which necessitates that a caesarean section is done. Snoring according to the research is a big problem in pregnant women. Snoring at least three times nights a week will even affect baby health. Chronic snorers who snored before and during pregnancy had the highest risks, being more likely to have smaller babies and elective C-sections. It has been recommended that pregnant moms are screened for breathing problems during their sleep.
