Hot baths are not recommended during pregnancy, but you can take a lukewarm bath. Massage therapy has a positive effect on stress, mood and sleep in pregnant women. Melatonin is a hormone that is naturally released by the body and helps us relax and fall asleep. Adding 2 cups of Epsom salt to your bath water can help you sleep better.
There is limited research on the use of melatonin during pregnancy, but so far studies have found that it is likely safe to take. A review found that starting a regular yoga practice in the second trimester reduced the number of nighttime awakenings and the amount of time study participants spent awake in bed.
