The research carried out by Dreamgenii Ltd shows that 96% of women experience sleep-related problems during pregnancy.

Dreamgenii, conducted research in December 2013, surveying women who were currently pregnant or had been pregnant in the past, to discover some of the sleep issues that they face when pregnant.

They found that the majority of women (54%) start experiencing problems sleeping from between 18 weeks and 24 weeks, although a significant number (18%) experience problems later – at 30 weeks.

Two thirds of the women surveyed use a specially-designed pregnancy pillow to help them sleep.
