A startling study might make you rethink your pregnancy sleep habits.

I am not one to really get all up in arms about the ten million warnings for pregnant women. Every which way you turn, there’s a new study about something new and awful that pregnant women are doing that can accidentally put their babies in danger.

Don’t breathe air!

Don’t use a phone!

Don’t stress because stress is bad for your baby!

Honestly, it can be completely exhausting and overwhelming, am I right? Unfortunately, pregnancy does not magically transform a woman and transport her into her own special little bubble where everyone and everything in the world is perfect and she never has to worry. She still has to work and get through life and deal with hard challenges. But at the same time, it is important to be aware of the small ways we can protect ourselves during pregnancy.
