Snoring should not be taken lightly, especially in pregnancy. Why? Because snoring is associated with other health related complications for both mom and baby.
My wife is 36-weeks pregnant. She generally snores at a medium sound level while sleeping. I haven't told her yet thinking it might hurt her feelings. Her snoring absolutely does not disturb me.
My concern is regarding the unborn baby. Will the noise disturb the baby in any way, say health wise, mental development, his hearing capacity or otherwise?
At a busy pediatric clinic in Rhode Island, Dr. Judith Owens sees a fair share of hyperactive children. They come in bouncing off the walls. Some may have trouble focusing in school or lash out at others for no apparent reason. Owens is quick to ask, "How well is your child sleeping?"
