Rest during pregnancy

Adequate rest gives you physical and mental relaxation which is good both for you and the baby

  • Have 8 hours of sleep at night and at least 2 hours rest during the day.
  •  Lie on your left side as it increases the blood supply to the foetus.
  • Avoid hard work such as lifting heavy weight.
  • Do not overexert yourself and delegate few tasks to others.
