Sleep is nature’s way of tuning your body for better performance, like the way a mechanic tunes your car. That’s why if you’re only getting four hours of sleep a night, you’re not at optimal performance. If you get pregnant with so little sleep, you are at higher risk of having high blood pressure and preeclampsia. You should aim to get eight hours of sleep a night, which can include daytime naps. Again, learning to sleep in a better routine will help you to get more sleep with a newborn!
