Physical changes at different stages of our lives can make getting a good night’s sleep a challenge for many women. Even during our normal monthly cycle, our temperatures and sleep patterns vary. If you are pregnant, nursing or going through the menopause, hormonal fluctuations can directly affect sleep making you restless or drowsier at different times, depending on your hormone levels.

Being pregnant and breast-feeding bring their own problems with pregnancy insomnia or just feeling uncomfortable at night. Choosing the right support for your bump, back and hips is essential, as is using a cushion that is also helpful for feeding your baby. Quality bedding which helps keep you cool in bed is a god-send for women suffering from menopausal symptoms such as hot-flushes and night sweats. Here we suggest the best products to help sleep and comfort, including support pillows, natural remedies plus temperature regulating duvets and pillows.
