Pregnancy looks different for every woman, women experience a change in their body, mood and sleep habits. A surprising fact about pregnancy is that according to The Sleep Foundation, “about 30% of pregnant women snore because of increased swelling in their nasal passages, which can block airways”. Furthermore, snoring can occur even if the mother has never snored prior to being pregnant.
Jenny Yuen is a web editor and reporter for the Toronto Sun. Jenny and her husband Christian are expecting their first child in January and have encountered an unexpected circumstance during Jenny’s second trimester - snoring. On CBC’s Now or Never, Jenny shares the devices and methods she has been using to reduce snoring. One of them being Smart Nora, which has brought her and her husband quiet nights.
One of the most common causes of snoring is weight gain. The extra fat that is deposited in the throat and neck area narrows the airway and can lead to snoring. With a petite 5 ft figure, Jenny has never snored her entire life. Even though her snoring does not disturb her, her husband pays the price for it. When Jenny’s snoring gets unbearable, Christian migrates to the couch in the middle of the night. The option to sleep in separate bedrooms is always the easy way out, but Jenny and Christian prefer to fall asleep and wake up next to each other.
Jenny and Christian have been looking for snoring solutions to make bedtime something to look forward to again. In the midst of the search, that was when Jenny found Smart Nora.
